Description

Blue Drum presents an Activist Summer Camp 2017

Communities in transition and community arts – making new connections

Glencree, Co. Wicklow, Saturday & Sunday, June 17/18 June 2017.

The aim of the Camp in 2017 is to build bridges because we know that the experience of one can be of help to the other. Are you an activist/artist or leader who is working deeply with the people, place and the environment? Do you want to shape a new initiative and exchange focused on communities in transition?

4.30 – 6.00 Francois Matarasso will speak about transition, community and participatory art. He will explore new ways to create momentum for it and ask us how we think about what we do, why we’re doing it, and what will happens as a result.
