I am co-convening the conference Anxiety, Culture
Programme highlights include public art producer and curator Claire Doherty in conversation with Greens Senator for NSW Mehreen Faruqi. They will discuss empathic ways of directing and producing the arts amid a climate of increasing cultural anxiety.
I’m also particularly excited about the panel Feeling the Future, which will explore how exhibitions create opportunities to experience the future in immersive, emotional ways. We will hear from Nina Ernst, Associate Director, Programmes, ArtScience Museum, John O’Shea, Associate Director (Creative), Science Gallery London and Bec Dean, Postdoctoral Research Fellow at NIEA, UNSW, and Senior Curator for The Big Anxiety – festival of arts + science + people.
