Shotgun 7: Triple Lives Roundtable - creating a wider ecology for your practice
Location: Contemporary Art Tasmania
Independent curator Jasmin Stephens will work with the Shotgun 7 finalists and explore how to create a wider local, national, regional and international ecosystem for their practices.
The workshop is intended to provide stimulus as participants think about their professional development objectives. It is envisaged that topics covered will include the development and care of networks and different kinds of organising. The problematic nature of the concept of ‘triple lives’ will also be considered. Over the course of the Roundtable, the input of colleagues from beyond Tasmania of different generations and who have taken varied pathways will be shared.
