The concept of 'cultural diversity' is often read as abstract and detached perhaps overly mired in policy and technical language. It’s an oft-repeated term but how does it resonate as an essential, dynamic part of everyday life? What might ‘cultural diversity’ mean in practice: in people’s intimate lives, in neighbourhoods and within communities of place and interest?
This Summer School on Cultural Diversity, an initiative of the Arts Council's Artist in the Community Scheme, brought together 15 artists, thinkers, activists on a four-day residency enabling a ‘think and do’ collaborative approach, utilizing creative workshops, critical and comparative case studies, one-to-one mentoring, and international guest speakers..
Directed by Áine O’Brien, Co-Director, Counterpoints Arts, and facilitated by Mary Ann Devlieg, Khaled Barakeh , and Áine O'Brien.
A partnership between Create and Counterpoints Arts.
