Palermo: The Black Mediterranean – Collaborative, Investigative Methods in a Frontier Place

Date & Time: 22 October, 11am – 12:30pm

Moderated by Áine O’Brien (Counterpoints Arts), Einashe reflects on how the tools of investigative journalism – interviews, data, trauma-informed reporting, cross-border, and diverse, collaborative forms of journalism – might align and compliment experimental, embedded approaches of socially engaged art practice; how both practices can mutually inform each other to gain a more vital sense of urban citizenship and how local places are continuously transformed through different waves of migration.
