Conversations on community engagement as an art practice
Community Engagement in Dance Forums
Presented by Karen Jamieson Dance and The Dance Centre
Karen Jamieson Dance and The Dance Centre invite you to join our third in a series of on-going forums that examine the tangible and not so tangible aspects of the community engaged art practice and its relationship, specifically in dance, to practice with professionals. Out of 2011â€™s forums a series of questions emergedâ€¦we continue the conversation addressing some of those questions.
Facilitated by jil p. weaving (Coordinator, Arts, Culture, Recreation & Environment, Vancouver Board of Parks & Recreation) these informal in-the-round discussions will include contributions from a variety of practicing community engaged artists from senior to emerging.
Everyone is welcome! No Admission Charge

Perspective, Culture & Conflict
How do you navigate the tension between the communityâ€™s perspective and the art worldâ€™s perspective?
What of cultural specificity in dance?
Does the assuming of a universal language create a disconnect between artist and community?
Is it all about the story of the participant?
Is the artist engaged in a tradition of witnessing and telling?
What is your story?
