Practice and Power

Artists across the world are engaging with diverse constituencies to develop projects that seek to influence and expand the possibilities for greater participation and agency across artistic, cultural and socio-political spheres. Practice and Power will consider this paradigm shift towards collaborative processes and methodologies within the arts.

Influenced by globalisation, emerging communication tools and the changing geopolitical landscape over CAPP’s four year arc, Practice and Power will critically engage with questions of negotiation, power and representation in collaborative art practice.

An international community of artists, participants, community activists thinkers, policy makers and programmers will gather in Dublin for this major event, which is the culmination of a series of public Staging Posts held at key points across the CAPP partner network over 2017/2018.

In addition to workshops, discussion events, and networking opportunities Practice and Power will showcase a selection of CAPP projects, share learnings from the CAPP research process and launch the CAPP project publication. Practice and Power marks the final and most significant dissemination moment for CAPP.

LADA’s Restock, Rethink, Reflect Four: Live Art and PrivilegeLibrary of Performing RightsPLAYING UP and KAPUTT projects will all be represented through discussions and screenings with Barby Asante, Cecilia Wee, Mary Paterson and Sibylle Peters, and there will be a Play-In of PLAYING UP at The Lab, Dublin on 23 June.

The full programme can be found on the CAPP website. LADA is a CAPP partner organisation.
