Event Details

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!

21 Nov 2017 (Tues)
10.30 a.m. – 5 p.m.

In an exclusive full-day workshop for the first time in Singapore, established German artist Susanne Bosch offers a “convivialist toolbox” and experimental format of approaching a human, societal or globally urgent topic, that asks:

· What makes for the spirit of reciprocal art-making in an age of fragmentation?
· How can we apply this to our own creative context? When does value emerge?
· How can we build skills to bring others on a journey of transformation and growth as global citizens?

22 Nov 2017 (Wed)
10 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Artist Susanne Bosch and Researcher/Curator Herman Bashiron Mendolicchio will host a public seminar featuring presentations and a conversation circle with local artists and practitioners.
After this event, there will be an artist-led experiential tour by theatre practitioner Jalyn Han. (Dependent on final participant numbers.)

Limited to 40 pax. RSVP required
Site to be announced

Using the philosophy and inspired by theatre practitioner and trainer Jalyn Han’s Seeding Lab, participants are invited to activate their senses and explore from ‘nothing’, with nobody knowing where or what our union of ideas will lead to. Seeding Lab is a common space and time for curious minds to generate fresh ideas and forms; to express their innermost voices..

Please note:
Wear comfortable clothing on all sessions as we’ll be moving around quite a bit.
You are responsible for your own pacing of the physical movements during the workshop – listen to your body.
Priority is given to registrations as places are limited.

DAY 2 is FREE and open to the public.

23 Nov 2017 (Thurs)
10.30 a.m. – 1.30 p.m.
