Performing Solidarity – Making Common Cause

LADA is hosting two events in a series discussing the ways that solidarity can be organised and performed through the arts. In what ways can performance participate in the solidarity economy? How does performance function as a site for solidarity? Can performance practice offer specific models for organising solidarity? Each gathering will bring together artists and representatives from the wider solidarity economy to share their creative and activist approaches.

Please join us for the first event – an invitation to collectively consider current social issues and alternative ways that artistic practices can offer with regard to relating and coexisting.

With Lena Simic, Annie Jael Kwan, Helena Suarez and Jamal Harewood.

The events are organised and chaired by Noyale Colin (University of Winchester, Centre for Performance Practice and Research (CPPR) and Stefanie Sachsenmaier (Middlesex University).

The second event in this series will take place on Wednesday 4 December at 7pm.
