Come Together: Rethinking Art and Citizenship
What role can art play in transforming democracies? How can theatre and performance act as a vehicle to test drive new realities? And what happens when children are not students – but researchers and collaborators?
Sibylle Peters is the founder of Fundus Theatre in Germany, where children, artists, researchers and citizens of all ages meet to explore and change the world together. In Melbourne for the Fringe, she’ll be joined by leading local artists and theatre-makers to talk about creative collaboration and the changing possibilities of democracy.
Hosted by Tristan Meecham, our panellists will consider how we can shrug off old ideas and reinvent the world – through art, play, research and experimentation.
This event is presented in partnership with Melbourne Fringe. This event is supported by Goethe-Institut.
This event will be Auslan interpreted.
