Lab: 'Family Entanglements' - ; A Place of Their Own

  • S1 Artspace 1 Norwich Street Sheffield S2 5PN (map)

‘; A Place, of Their Own’ is a collaboration between Paula McCloskey and Sam Vardy.

As a reflection of their own family practice they will facilitate collective activities based around string games and Cat's Cradle, whereby delegates will explore critical themes including:

Radicality in the family and your practice; home as a site of arts practice; maternity as practice; alternative futures, new intergenerational relations and making different forms of kinship.

The lab will seek to explore how living with and raising children might offer ways to think about alternative futures in the face of economic, social and environmental crisis and how the 'family' might be a site of resistance to dominant ideologies.
