This series of events brings together an international line-up of artists, academics and cultural professionals to debate what is at stake in re-imagining new forms of citizenship and modes of civic participation. In a connected, increasingly post-national world, what role do artists and public institutions play in critically querying understandings of citizenship and in creating a space where new sensibilities, terminologies and practices of citizenship are enabled? Sarah Archdeacon, Artistic Director of Corali, a UK-based dance company founded in 1985, shares her approaches to contemporary arts practice and how Corali explores and negotiates concepts of ‘community'. Brazil-based artist Elisa Bracher presents on her visual arts practice and the practice of Instituto Acaia, founded in 2001, exploring how education and health access are central in the Instituto programmes. Participants in this seminar, chaired by Liz Ellis Curator Community Learning, Tate Modern will have opportunities to discuss the differing cultural contexts of these approaches, share learning by exploring the differences as well as the shared approaches to arts practices in a globalised world, where increasing structural inequalities exclude many from participation, freedom of expression and social justice.
