Lokomotif and new visions invite artists and creatives of different disciplines who work or aspire to work with communities for an open online workshop on exploring the Inside(r)/Outside(r) dichotomy in community-engaged art. The workshop is designed as a space for exploring the role of arts in fostering social justice, reflect on the impact of (social) positions, personal life journeys, and power dynamics on artistic practice, and tapping into tools and insights for creating meaningful, context-sensitive and equitable relationships and connections, when engaging with communities (in a broad understanding of this term).
The workshop will be based on interactive and self-reflective exercises to facilitate introspection processes and conversations about building relationships across differences, with a particular focus on community-engaged artistic practices. Participants will be invited to explore their life-journeys and positionality, reflect on their previous community oriented artistic practices, work with different case studies of community-engaged art, and exchange and learn about tools and practices that can be applied in working with diverse communities and entering spaces as an “outsider”.
“new visions” is a Berlin based collective that works with leaders in culture and arts to transform existing narratives and thus create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive world.
new visions is the outcome of a long term collaboration of Agnieszka Bulacik and Liene Jurgelane, who will also be the facilitators of the workshop. Agnieszka and Liene have navigated between the fields of art/culture and education for many years, creating and facilitating a variety of learning spaces, being directly involved in artistic and cultural work both as practicing artists and curators of a variety of cultural and social initiatives.
