How can we create an open atmosphere that builds power within and between excluded groups?
Much of participatory arts aims to work with communities who are seen as marginalised, using the arts and culture to redress inequality. Often these communities are talked about as ‘hard to reach’ or ‘excluded’ from the mainstream, however the networks within them make them strong and resilient to change.
This event will open with provocations from guest speakers based on their experiences of building and maintaining meaningful relationships within and across communities.
Following the provocations and Q&A, attendees will be invited to reflect on these themes and what these ideas mean for their communities, arts practice and the participatory art sector more widely.
