WHY LIVE ART, WHY NOW?
LIVE CONVERSATIONS CURATED BY Sally Rose and Xavier de Sousa
We Are In Public / The Condition of Things / We Are (only) Human
Guest curated by Sally Rose and Xavier de Sousa this series of discussions aims to shape an understanding of the landscape of the arts in Ireland, and the relevance of the international programme offered by Live Collision.
Using three of Live Collision’s festival strands to inform an active enquiry into the importance of festivals, how artists are reaching out to audiences and each other, and how Live Art can reflect on current social and political issues. Findings and outcomes will be shared throughout the festival via Live Collision blog and more widely.
