In spite of an increasing rate of exchanges, our relation to the Other in a globalized world doesn't seem to have evolved much. Our perception of the Other continues to be filtered by a view of otherness including prejudice, recycled racial, social and cultural stereotypes, a view generating differences, categories and fantasies.
Offering a critical analysis of the perception of others or seeking to build a renewed representation, the artists we present in this project open us to another reality.
Following the success of last year's 'Owning the Arts' conference, this year's conference focusses on 'Making Things Happen'' and sustainability in the arts in the 21st century. It is aimed at artists, arts managers, producers, educators, and community activists who want to share experiences and best practice.
