the visitors

‘The Visitors’ scheme will offer a series of networking and skills sharing opportunities and discussions for art practitioners, art organisers and the general public. Discussions will focus on the accessibility of the arts, the range of media and activities employed to distribute and share artworks and will highlight art activities within existing structures in the contexts of relocation, development, obstruction, (re)organisation and functions as well as creating new platforms and networks.

THE VISITORS – TALK 1:

Structure and Site Search. Art organisers experience sharing.

SATURDAY, 16TH JULY, 4PM.

A discussion on art activities in the contexts of relocating, development, destruction, obstruction, (re) organising and functioning within existing structures as well as creating new platforms and networks.

This event looks at the role of the arts and importance of the artist’s voice in the human rights debate. Can storytelling, the written word and other art gestures be regarded as activism, and what can they change and contribute to the human rights movement? The framework of the talk will be defined by Transport’s current theatre work, which is connected to notions of migration and related issues. This event is open to the public.
