Around the Outside #1 | The Tyranny of the Expert
Event: 15.03.15 11:00 - 5:00pm
Firstdraft is excited to launch the first of it's new bi-monthly critical afternoons, AROUND THE OUTSIDE. Part reading room, part film club, and part open dialogue, AROUND THE OUTSIDE is dedicated to fostering informal, non-institutional learning and creative criticality.
The first of these events, THE TYRANNY OF THE EXPERT, aims to create a blueprint for the creation of a collaborative and experimental environment for exchange. Whether through artistic practice dedicated to social intervention, or institutional action that looks beyond the gallery walls, invited participants in our first open session foster collective engagement unfettered by predetermined outcomes and the tyranny of the expert. Complimented by readings and film screenings, these artists, writers and curators will seek to create space for generative thought and action. How? We can't wait to find out.
Join us for an afternoon of informal conversation, cross-medium thought, and BBQ. Exploration of these ideas will occur across readings, films and talks and artistic actions. Whether you're looking for the place to air your most unorthodox and unfinished ideas, or you just want to come along for the ride, we look forward to welcoming you to THE TYRANNY OF THE EXPERT, the inaugural event in our bi-monthly series, AROUND THE OUTSIDE.
