Festival lineups and curated content always tell a story. They say something about who is the chooser, the decider; and about who they think their audiences and communities are. This collection of panelists, who are all deliberate deciders and conscious curators, colour outside of convention and dominant, normative, mainstream culture. They create spaces in their programming that reflect marginalized people and bold new art forms; that deliver radical perspectives and provoke audiences to move in new directions. Invariably, this work also comes with its share of complexity, challenges and controversy.
This event takes place in English.
