The Art of Conviviality: Tools for Shared Values and Communities
What makes for the spirit of reciprocal art-making in an age of fragmentation?
In a 3-day hands-on series of workshops and a seminar, we explore the topic of conviviality in participative and social art practices.
We hope this workshop and seminar will be useful for emerging and experienced artists from across all art forms interested in expanding their toolkit in the field of collaborative and social practice, as well as educators, activists, workers and thinkers engaged in community-based practice.
If you are interested in how creative engagement can nurture global citizenship and empathic action around local and global justice themes, this workshop is for you!
