BaNd:expanded in Finland soon

The next BaNd:expanded atelier is taking place on November 8-14 in Helsinki and Tampere. This atelier themed on ART AND ACTIVISM. TACTICAL PERFORMANCE focuses on political strategies in art and explores the connection between art and activism. Together with the mentor of the atelier, American author, performer, and the founding director of the Center for Artistic Activism/West Coast, Larry M. Bogad, participants will investigate and practice the tactical performence, which engages with and supports current social conflict/social movement campaigns. Artists are asked to bring to the Atelier a political issue or problem they want to confront and explore in performance, and at least one nonfictional text that deals with that issue. During the first phase in Helsinki participants will see and discuss the performances of the Baltic Circle Festival. The second phase of the workshop in Tampere will be dedicated to theory and practice of the tactical performance.
