Symposium and launch event Sat, 2 November 2019 10:00 – 17:00 GMT
The Screen exhibition 2/11/2019 - 6/12/2019

An Inside/Outside arts symposium bringing together artists, students, academics and aspiring changemakers.

At the launch event you can explore dissent as an active and dynamic response to the situations we find ourselves in, individually and collectively. The Symposium will kick-start the laboratory process which will run for 5 weeks, performed by CAS Associate Artists.

We currently live in an increasingly polarised society where for many reasons you can find yourself either ‘inside’ or ‘outside’. Divisions exist politically environmentally, ideologically, economically and socially. At the same time our understanding of our own identity is changing, lines are blurring between an on and offline world, social media adds a further dimension of inclusion or exclusion.
Through conversation and creative participation we can learn more about ourselves, and working collaboratively.

What you can look forward to:

The Laboratory of Dissent is a place to test ideas and experiment with what it means to share space with multiple viewpoints and persons. A full programme will be announced in due course, you can expect:

Interactive discussions and explorations with guest speakers and CAS artists
Diverse presentations and perspectives
Short-films on the Inside/Outside theme
Surprises, inspirations, and stimulating ideas
Find out how Dissent has transformed CAS' collaborative practices and share in our experiences
