17 October at 6pm and 18 October from 10am to 4.30pm
Institute for Lifecourse & Society, North Campus, Daingean, NUI Galway, Galway City
Legacies of Community Arts and Culture as agency for social justice and transformation now.
The community arts work undertaken in Ireland in the 1970s, 80s and 90s fomented new forms of empathy, resistance and solidarity. An event in October will explore the legacies and collective memories of this field of practice and will be accompanied by a set of Legacy Papers.
Following up on the challenge from Claiming Our Future’s Broken Politics event it seems timely to look back and to amplify how community arts and cultural work can be mobilised in and through civil society, in order to forge a synchronised network of activists and practitioners.
This event is free but places are limited and must be booked by October 7 (Friday), 2016. Bookings can be made by emailing your details to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Donations to support costs associated with this event are needed including in-kind support.
