performance lecture at the

international conference at Goethe-Institut Thessaloniki

The conference will present case studies and scholarly debates that discuss novel approaches towards work and socially engaged art practices. The aim is to show the mutual dependence of work and art in envisioning the future of an upcoming society, via a productive exchange between the fields of art, education, creative industries, technology, politics, economy and research-based knowledge. Distinguished contributors from these fields, both academics and practitioners, will offer their proposals and insights on building alternative models of urban creativity, social entrepreneurship, resilient economies and civic participation, that can shape the future of work.

The conference will be divided into five sessions with the following working titles:
Art for Social Change – theory and practices
Political Strategies in Art
Economy, Invention of Work, Digital Commons, Maker Movement
Art & Education
Perspectives on the Concept of Labour
Community, Urban Transformation, Digital Culture

A unique trait is the conference format. Directed as a creative laboratory, the conference will pay particular attention to audience interaction, and at the same time function as case-study / best-practice model relevant to the the topic at hand. Public around the world will be able to follow the conference live online and join the discussion via a specially setup youtube channel. International institutions are invited to host the live broadcast of the event and/or organise parallel discussions.
