Q. What existing social practice do you know/have experience of? (good, bad, and ugly)
Q. How did this change your view/opinion/actions? Q. What place/shape could social art practice take as a tool for change-making in your life/work situation?
12 July 2017, Discussion at Truth-Dare-Art Social Practice Forum,
Felicie Kertudo's notes: Since they were only two people in the group, the gallery invigilator got involved in the discussion.
She first talked about a dyeing workshop that took place at John Hansard Gallery. As a result, she made new friends and found the job at the gallery.
The key word throughout the discussion was "opportunities".
They touched on photography, as one of the participant is commissioned to take pictures of the event, and how it allows the photographer to get to know people. It reminds me that one of the participant is writing her PhD about the role of photography portraiture to depict transnationalism.
There was a discussion about a hypothetical art project that would take a participant's film depicting a poor mental health experience. 'I want to project it onto buildings', 'How could we involve audiences?'. The layer of social engagement could be embodied as a photography challenge, where participants would be asked to portray their own mental health experience.
