We are really excited to be presenting The Eile Project at this conference in June, there are some fantastic keynotes including Anna Tsing, Una Chaudhury and Monika Bakke. While we problematise the term anthropocene, these are urgent and important debates.

SOCIAL ART SUMMIT / SHEFFIELD


a place of their own are delighted to be running one of the labs at the Social Art Summit in Sheffield 1st/2nd November 18. www.socialartsummit.com
Family Entanglements seeks to explore through an active workshop based on the game Cat's Cradle,
a) How might the 'family' be a site of resistance to dominant ideologies as well as of imagining collective alternative futures, through different kinds of collectivity, by thinking beyond 'family' to kinship / more than human / non-biologically based conceptions.
b) how living with and raising children, and the various relations and encounters that are enabled, creates the potential for criticality, radicality and resistance, and how it might offer ways to think about alternative futures in the face of economic, social and environmental crisis, and what kinds of artistic practice are enabled.
