Hanaholmen, Esbo

16.5.2019 09:30 - 16:00

Seminariet riktar sig till alla dem som har ett intresse av att diskutera projekt som fokuserar på utlandsfödda konstnärer och kulturabetare i de nordiska länderna.

Öppna upp konstbranschen i Norden – utlandsfödda konstarbetare i konst-och kulturinstitutioner

Follow us live:

Hur öppnar konst-och kulturinstitutioner sina dörrar för människor med annan bakgrund, inte enbart i egenskap av publik, utan som aktiva deltagare/tillverkare?

I många nordiska länder pågår projekt med syfte att förbättra utlandsfödda konstnärers och kulturarbetares inkludering i samhällets konst- och kultursektor. Seminariedagen erbjuder deltagaren möjlighet att ta del av redan uppnådda resultat och bäst praxis samt att samlas kring nya idéer, som man kan anpassa i sitt eget arbete eller i sin organisation.

Evenemanget är ett samarbete mellan Globe Art Point, Hanaholmen, Cupore, Kultur för alla och Centret för konstfrämjande (Taike), och det understöds av Undervisnings- och kulturministeriet i Finland.

Seminariet är en del av #Stophatrednow-festivalens program 2019. Programmets språk är engelska.

  1. Inclusion without exclusionSacra Rosello (DK) In this workshop, we shall share experiences and different approaches to inclusion and consider whether or not it is possible to have inclusion without exclusion. Participants will be asked to contribute to a conversation about how they use language to promote and avoid one or the other concept. Representative of IMMART – International Migration Meets the Arts, Sacra Rosello, will start the conversation by sharing the story of how the debate about inclusivity manifested itself in the naming of the initiative.
  2. Not without us – Thomas Talawa Prestø (NO) Diversity is only diversity if someone was missing. In this workshop, we talk about recruitment and inclusion with the aim of equity. Early involvement, low threshold and high quality as markers for success.
  3. Racialisation on stage – Julian Owusu (FI) The stage, be it a theatre stage or media platform, is reflective of societal norms. In addition to being reflective of reality, the stage also creates reality. It breeds new norms. It has the potential to normalize as well as question and dismantle existing norms. Existing norms create blind spots that enforce said norms on stage, which in turn enforces said norms in society. This workshop will explore some tools to shed light on blind spots around racialization on stage.
    “I have a theory. An audience doesn’t need to get wrapped up in blackness every time they see a black actor. And a movie doesn’t have to be about race just because there’s a black person in it.  – Jim Brown”
  4. The Museum of Movements (SE) In this workshop you can contribute and learn more about how the Museum of Movements (MoM) in Malmö, Sweden is planning to work together with civil society to broaden the concepts of migration and democracy, by developing new ways of collaboration in a space for story-telling, artistic expressions and knowledge production. MoM aims to accomplish this by creating a more democratic museum practice. Meet team members behind the development of The Museum of Movements. Presenting: Armando Perla and Roxana Ortiz
