SELF-ORGANISING AS A FEMINIST STRATEGY? A PARTICIPATORY MEETING

We are at a starting point of a long term collaborative research project on organising as a feminist strategy.

We invite you to an open forum for discussion on organising as an integrated part of artistic practice rather than an external or peripheral aspect. We are also exploring self-organising as a possible feminist strategy,  exploring the history of how self-organising within an art context crossed over with organising in a political context.

We will include historical as well as contemporary examples of organising and collective projects, including the Art Workers Coalition (USA) and the movements that took shape afterward which challenged heirarchies of power and exclusion within the art world,and also acted in solidarity with social struggles, as well as more current organising around precarity such as ctrl-i (Spain). We will also draw on our own personal experiences. We will have material for a screening (from the LUSN archive), readings, and other materials and encourage participants to contribute with other examples and personal experiences.
