INSTAGRAM LIVE SERIES
Curated and hosted by Paula Varjack
“For those of us who face marginalisation for our race, sexuality, class, age, gender, disability or an intersection of these, how can we use our experiences to empower the next generation of agitators?”
Multi-disciplinary artist and Guildhall tutor, Paula Varjack, curates and hosts a second series of conversations in collaboration with students from the School's BA Performance and Creative Enterprise (PACE).
These informal conversations, streamed via Instagram Live, will invite practitioners who have made things happen for themselves and who push for social change through their practice to share advice, experience and ideas with the next generation.
