8 November, 4 to 6pm
Common Ground and Create are partnering on this discussion event as part of the Create Debates and Common Ground’s CURIOUS CONVERSATIONS.
This event will host a wide-ranging discussion exploring culturally diverse participatory art practices. Panel includes UK based artist Sonia Boyce, Vukasin Nedeljkovic of Asylum Archive and Dublin based artist Laragh Pittman who is currently working with a Muslim women’s group in the context of her CITIZEN ARTIST award. The discussion will be chaired by Anne Mulhall. Drawing on direct project experience of these artists and collaborators, the discussion will focus on a range of questions on socially engaged art practice in the context of cultural diversity, ethics and representation; politics of engagement and also on the issue of how artists work with integrity,solidarity and real partnership with culturally diverse groups, avoiding the act of ‘Othering’ or ‘Exoticism?’.
