“Brand” New Generation at The Drum, 1st November 2012

On Thursday 1st November at 6pm I’ll be taking part in a panel discussion at The Drum, as part of Kalaboration. The discussion will be chaired by Elly Clarke and will feature myself, Dan Auluk and Karen Mclean.

“Brand” New Generation

Who are the new wave of artists practicing today and what are their influences? Can artists become a success commercially whilst addressing politics, diversity and identity? Should participating in the arts for young people be purely a creative process, or is it important to address social, environmental and cultural issues? Our panel of speakers and presentations provide an insight of the “Brand New Generation”.

The discussion focuses on who are the new wave of artists practising today and what are their influences? Each artist can be regarded as emerging in the past couple of years and are beginning to make a name for themselves in their respective practises. This is an opportunity for them to share their ideas and experiences of recent projects with our audience. The discussion will also focus the ever changing social, economic and political environment, locally and globally and the impact/influence this has had on their practice.

Places for this event are free, but you’re advised to contact Kalaboration, either via their website or Facebook, to confirm a place
