Cork Midsummer Festival to present at final BE PART symposium in Riga, Latvia
After four years of exploring the ethics of artistic participation, the BE PART partners (including Cork Midsummer Festival) and stakeholders will gather in Riga for a final Symposium.
The Symposium, International Assembly IV hosted by Homo Novus festival, aims to highlight projects from around the network, invite provocations from the participants and provides further inspiration to dive deeper into an ethical framework of co-authorship - three days of listening, talking, discussing, watching, participating, dancing, singing and toasting to the future.
Cork Midsummer Festival will present film-works capturing: Ode to Joy ISL performance with Amanda Coogan, Cork Community Deaf Choir with Lianne Quigley and Alvean Jones; and To Be As We Are, a play-based participation process with Eszter Nemethi, Claire Murphy and Traveller children. Al Bellamy who has been collaborating with Suisha Arts and Jody O’Neill will lead a workshop on Devising with Neuro-Diverse Theatre-Makers and creatively embedding access.
The symposium will also feature presentations by the Critical Network, Mara Oscar Cassiani (IT) and GUXXI Fabrika (LV) as well as Artist Workshops with Politics of Touch (SI), Gob Squad (GB/DE), and Sophie Hope & Henry Mulhall (GB). The symposium will also offer opportunities to reflect and think out loud with Panel Conversations about 'Community as Locality' and 'Community and Identity’.
The symposium will take place from Wednesday September 6 until Friday September 8 2023 in Riga, Latvia.
