Harsh Light considers the many different reverberations of 2020 in the art and cultural worlds. All sessions will be accompanied by BSL. They are free to attend, but booking is essential.
We will respond above all to the following questions:
• How have we, both personally and as art workers, most felt the impact of COVID-19?
• What are we doing in response to social and political crises, most notably Black Lives Matter?
• In what ways are funding bodies like the Arts Council England (ACE) determine the course of our work, practice, and life?
Harsh Light is borne of an urgent desire to examine systemic issues of art worlds through the different lived realities of artists and cultural workers. We hope that the webinar will speak to practitioners who are searching for new ways of surviving / flourishing in pandemic times.
