The CAPP partners’ network are delighted to announce visual artist Jeanne van Heeswijk and Pier Luigi Sacco, Professor of Cultural Economics, IULM University Milan as the keynote speakers for Practice and Power – the major dissemination event of the four year Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP), 20-23 June in Dublin, Ireland.
Jeanne van Heeswijk is an artist who facilitates the creation of dynamic and diversified public spaces in order to “radicalize the local.” Her long-scale community-embedded projects question art’s autonomy by combining performative actions, discussions, and other forms of organizing and pedagogy in order to assist communities to take control of their own futures.
Pier Luigi Sacco is the Professor of Cultural Economics, IULM University Milan; Director of the IRVAPP center of Bruno Kessler Foundation, Trento; Senior Researcher, metaLAB at Harvard, and visiting scholar at Harvard University. He works and consults internationally in the fields of culture-led local development and is often invited as keynote speaker in major cultural policy conferences worldwide.
As artists across the world are engaging with diverse constituencies to develop projects that seek to influence and expand the possibilities for greater participation and agency across artistic, cultural and socio-political spheres, Practice and Power will consider this paradigm shift towards collaborative processes and methodologies within the arts. Influenced by globalisation, emerging communication tools and the changing geopolitical landscape over CAPP’s four year arc, Practice and Power will critically engage with questions of negotiation, power and representation in collaborative arts practice.
Jeanne and Pier Luigi will reflect on these and other questions, from their respective experience in practice and policy and we are honoured to have them joining the international community of artists, participants, community activists thinkers, policy makers and programmers gathering in Dublin for this transnational event of CAPP.
