GENERATE // CREATE
Co-curating with communities
What constitutes community engaged, contemporary art-making? What is best practice?
Jade Lillie and Richie Hallal will illustrate ways to engage effectively and co-curate with communities and artists. Gain practical skills and capabilities required to be a strong and effective facilitator, and further develop your existing knowledge to generate a deeper practice for yourself and your collaborators.
In this workshop, you will hear about how to develop and deliver a community engaged project along with what can happen if programs are not designed with communities. We will explore co-curation, privilege, ethics and power when it comes to working meaningfully with communities with the aim of ensuring that the relationship and outcome is ethical, mutual and authored by and with communities.
GENERATE is FCAC’s 10-part professional development series in contemporary community engaged practice. Be informed about best practice in the industry, and develop your leadership skills for social change.
