Description

COLLABORATIVE ARTS, INTERCULTURALISM AND HUMAN RIGHTS

Date: Thursday April 6
Time: 11am - 3pm
Venue: Irish Human Rights & Equality Commission, 16-22 Green Street, Dublin 7

This seminar sets out to encourage discussion about the vital role the arts, and in particular collaborative arts, can play in promoting interculturalism and human rights. The seminar will lay the foundations for a common arena for tactical and strategic approaches to social justice and human rights issues through the lens of arts and cultural practice. Of interest to arts practitioners and programmers, activists, civil society groups, policy makers in area of public provision for arts access, participation and the many informal groups who are activating culturally diverse projects in different contexts, the seminar will look at the contradictions and tensions which can arise in the arena of art and activism. Does art with a human rights agenda subvert or uphold a status quo? What are the challenges for makers and collaborators within a Human Rights frame?

The seminar will feature a keynote address by artist Dr. Anthony Haughey and include presentations, film and performance from artists and activists including visual artist Laragh Pittman film maker Jijo Sebastian among others.

Additional aims for the seminar are:
- To bring together the key constituencies in this knowledge community including artists, activists, civil society groups to explore common themes and share knowledge.
- To bring into dialogue actors within a field that is often fragmented.
- To promote best practice through key project examples and through cross sectoral exchange.
