Summer School on Collaborative Practice and Social Change
In a world increasingly shaped by displacement and uncertainty, the Summer School on Collaborative Practice and Social Change, offered by Create in partnership with UK-based Counterpoints Arts, is framed by global and trans-local frameworks. It is influenced by the diverse practices and experiences of participating artists and the mentoring and organisational frameworks of visiting international facilitators.
Collaborative and socially engaged arts practice lies at the heart of the Summer School, in the context of exploring different forms of social interaction produced through cooperative methods of working with and alongside communities, and the building of intersectional partnerships.
The Summer School on Collaborative Practice and Social Change takes the form of a multi-day residency enabling a ‘think and do’ approach, utilising a combination of skills training workshops, critical and comparative case studies, a creative group challenge, one-to-one mentoring and reflection.
