Kindness - A Symposium 4-5 November 2021
Hosted by La Trobe University’s Art, Culture and Community Research Cluster
Over two days we will attune our sensibilities to kindness in all its forms through conversations, workshops and exchange. As a group we will reflect on the nature of kindness/kinship and how we find or make it in art, research, practice and engagements. We want to explore how kindness and kinships can sustain and test relationships across species, environments and circumstances.
Discussions and workshops will be led by prominent artists, writers and academics including Pia Ednie Brown, Fayen d’Evie, Ingrid Horrocks, Natasa Kampmark, Nadia Niaz, Alison Pouliot, Jane Rawson, Zsuzsanna Soboslay, and Christopher Smith.
This symposium is free but registration is required. Limited places are available in some workshop sessions.
The Art, Culture and Community research cluster at La Trobe University is an interdisciplinary group with members from Creative Arts and English, Classics, History, Languages and Media. At the heart of our cluster are the relationships between artworks and cultural expressions, and those who create and engage with them. Our critical and creative explorations of these relationships speak to the social, environmental and political challenges of our times from contemporary and historical perspectives. Our work is focussed on developing new approaches and solutions to some of the most pressing issues we face today.
This symposium is made possible by support from the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the La Trobe Art Institute.
