Caring to Listen
In this lunchtime talk Caitlin Shepherd will share research and findings arising from her practice and research PhD, Caring to Listen, which examines how working-class experience is excluded from socially engaged art.
We are delighted to announce the return of in person Lunchtime Talks! Our talks will now be both in the building and streamed live, so you can join us from the comfort of the Studio or the comfort of your own screen, in your own space.
Capacity will be limited and we are asking people to book in for the talks, if you can. Please feel free to turn up on the day, although we can't guarantee there will be a space.
Book a ticket here.
Caitlin Shepherd is an artist, researcher and educator. She uses print design, sound installations and built structures to explore and listen to personal stories of everyday life, with particular interest in lived experiences of class identity, precarity and intersectional economic inequality. Caitlin has a background in socially engaged art and activism. Alongside working as an artist, she co-founded and directed award winning campaigns at This is Rubbish (2010 - 2015) and worked as a campaigner at Oxfam (2012 - 14). Caitlin currently teaches contextual and theoretical studies at London College of Communication, University of the Arts London.
In this talk Caitlin will share research and findings arising from her practice and research PhD, Caring to Listen. Her praxis examines how working-class experience is excluded from socially engaged art (and the creative industries at large), and how convivial listening practices might help to better understand and address such exclusions.
Join us, on Friday 22nd October, 13:00 - 14:00 for the talk and to take part in the discussion afterwards. Watch Live on Youtube Here
