Live Futures: Why Risk Gathering?

PERFORMANCE SPACE PRESENTS

Gatherings have become the contested agent of the COVID pandemic, a site of uncertainty and panic around safety and agency.

The pandemic crisis, and the BLM protests, have emphasised how gatherings of people have a key function in shaping our sense of social, political, cultural and health norms. Experimental artists lead the way in creating different kinds of gatherings, activated through artistic practice, that help us to imagine alternative futures.

What kinds of new social and political structures are being imagined by artists and the gatherings they create? What new possibilities are opening up? What risks are we taking by gathering? What risks are we taking by not gathering?
