THREE DAYS OF PERFORMANCES, WORKSHOPS, SEMINARS, SHOW & TELL PRESENTATIONS, HAPPENINGS and a 1-DAY SYMPOSIUM

LOADS OF FREE EVENTS

LAUNCH: FRIDAY 7 DEC., 6:30-11PM @ GOLDSMITHS

INTIMACY is a three-day digital and live art programme made to elicit connectivity, induce interaction and provoke debate between cutting edge artists, performers, leading scholars, respected researchers, creative thinkers and local communities. A culturally urgent series of events, INTIMACY is designed to address a diverse set of responses to the notion of ‘being intimate’ in contemporary performance and as such, in life. INTIMACY invites scholars, researchers, artists and audiences to enable the interrogation and creative exploration of formal, aesthetic and affective modes of performing intimacy now.

Please note: Knowledge East is offering 2 BURSARIES worth 500 GBP each, for student workshop participants who will submit a successful application for an enterprise project inspired by any of the 4 INTIMACY workshops. Grab the chance!
