Platform BK: Solidarity Camp
September 22, 2022 - September 24, 2022
How to convince a museum to abandon fossil industry sponsoring? How to take action against gentrification in your neighborhood as a cultural worker? How to you write a good open letter? In short: How to create political change through activism in the arts?
Platform Beeldende Kunst celebrates its 10th anniversary with the Platform BK Solidarity Camp. Join us for three days of discussions, talks and skill-sharing at Casco Art Institute: Working on the Commons in Utrecht on 22, 23 and 24 September 2022.
There is no such thing as solodarity. Therefore we organise this event together with Casco Art Institute: Working on the Commons, Cultural Workers Unite, Engagement Arts NL, Fossil Free Culture NL, Tools for the Times, and Salwa Foundation. These organizations take action to make the arts fairer, safer, more diverse and more inclusive. Each has their own expertise and skills to create political change. During the Solidarity Camp, the organisations and participants exchange skills, strategies and visions, because we stand stronger together. Thus, we learn from each other and lay the ground work for future activism and solidarity in the arts.
The event is free of charge for members of Platform BK, €10 for non-members, and €5 for students.
Details of the program will be announced in late August. You can already reserve a spot and register via this form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe2w8_LwQWTSPgUKaVPLc71H6isEggi7JHdPtKKRT81Q_vgbQ/viewform?usp=sf_link
