Art & Politic
Monday 16th July 2012 at Campbell Works
AltMFA talk - Art and Politic
'We've decided to allow for 15 minutes per guest to introduce their work generally and/or specific art and politics work/ideas, in whatever way they wish. I hope that suits you. We'll have laptop/projector/speakers. In between each guest's 15 minutes, we're planning ways for small groups to discuss and expand on the works and ideas presented thus far.
The whole evening will be 6.30-9.30 (we'll bring some snacks!).
In case you're interested the other guests will hopefully be:
Jennie Savage - an artist and lecturer who kindly donated to us her book/Film/sound project Depending On Time, a project remembering/archiving the area of Cardiff where the old arcades were about to be demolished for a giant shopping mall. http://www.jenniesavage.co.uk/Publications/publications.htm
Wilf Sullivan - a race equality officer for for the TUC. He was involved in Rock Against Racism and is the treasurer for Hackney Unites, a local social justice group (who we work with sometimes) and also the treasurer for a music technology centre in Islington.
Campbell Works - a unique artist collaboration, between Neil Taylor & Harriet Murray, whos combined practice has produced amitious public realm initiatives, a ongoing gallery project, and numerous projects exploring participatory strategies that seek to weave a route through the experimental and commercial realms.
