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 brings together artists and representatives from the wider solidarity economy to share their creative and activist approaches.
Please join us for the second performing solidarity event – an invitation to collectively consider current social issues and alternative ways that artistic practices can offer with regard to creating new structures for relating and coexisting.
With Joon Lynn Goh, Sheila Ghelani, Rosalie Schweiker, Jane Trowell (Platform).
The events are organised and chaired by Noyale Colin (University of Winchester, Centre for Performance Practice and Research (CPPR)) and Stefanie Sachsenmaier (Middlesex University).
Further events to follow at the University of Winchester and Middlesex University in early 2020 – see Facebook.
