NUMBI SUMMER FESTIVAL LAUNCH
June 27, 2019 @ 18:00 - 20:00Free
How can art be a tool for environmental sustainability, ecology, social justice, well-being, non-violence and grassroots democracy?
An invitation for artists and special guests to collaborate with us on different projects throughout the year to facilitate mutual learning alongside our Numbi resident artists. Our ongoing research and open archive is an exploration of how to engage, create and collapse the notion of Somali stories and self-representation. A collection of studies navigating how decades of war and migration have forged the future for Somali artists who are reconnecting with this complex history by placing ourselves in the ecology of contemporary British culture. This research also serves as a curriculum, a space for learning and cultivating a socially engaged arts practice.
By asking, “What does freedom mean to you?” we want our audience and collaborators to be able to gain access to their most intimate fears, desires and sense of belonging. We want you to dive into the deep.
