Open Forum: Cultural Strategies for Solidarity and Liberation

7 December '23 at 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

What is the role of cultural workers and artists within movements?
How can we build and vision our political engagement beyond critique alone?
Which methods can inspire creative strategy to shift mainstream culture?
How can we move beyond urgency towards building sustainable cultural infrastructures outside of institutions?

This open forum hosted by Sarah Al Sarraj invites cultural workers, artists and organisers to collectively think through past and emerging practices of cultural solidarity. Joined by creator, writer and educator Aditi Ahalya Jaganathan, we will reflect on our roles, and how we can respond creatively to collective liberation, and the movements in DR Congo, Haiti, Kurdistan, Iran, Palestine and Sudan.

Attendees are invited to come with questions and ideas, aimed at building a wider framework of sustainable cultural infrastructures beyond institutions.

This event is part of our In Response programme strand, devised in a yearlong collaboration in 2023 with Open School East as part of their Alumni Development Strand.
