Access to Arts & Culture
Von Detroit Techno zu Afrofuturismus – Detroits vielfältige Kreativszene hat der Stadt einen Platz unter den globalen Hotspots für Kunst, Musik und Kultur gesichert. Aber wie steht es um Zugang zu und Teilhabe an unterschiedlichen Feldern der Kulturlandschaft? In diesem Track geht es um den Zugang zu Kunst und Kultur.
Lasst uns den Puls von Detroit erforschen: Wie hilft Kunst, eine inklusivere, solidarischere und aktivere Gemeinschaft zu schaffen? Welche Infrastruktur unterstützt Künstler*innen und Musiker*innen, die keine finanziellen Ressourcen mitbringen? Und wie werden die Museen der Zukunft beeinflussen, wie wir Kulturgüter wahrnehmen?
Lasst uns Kultur gemeinsam spielerisch neu erfinden, Grenzen ausloten und Wissen teilen. Gemeinsam wollen wir in der digitalen Gesellschaft nach interessanten Orten suchen, künstlerische Räume umdenken und analysieren, wie bestehende kulturelle Einrichtungen, wie etwa Bibliotheken und Museen, in Detroit genutzt werden. Wir freuen uns auf vielfältige Beiträge von Künstler*innen, Kulturexpert*innen, Vertreter*innen von Kulturinstitutionen und Forscher*innen.
- Arts & Culture-30 minute excerpt of the award winning dance theater work written by poet Jessica Care moore, directed and choreographed by Aku Kadogo. Salt City takes place in an ancient salt mine in the past-future year, 3071. The dance theater work fuses poetry, techno and dance to elevate the conversation of the survival of indigenous people fighting against colonization and extinction around the globe.
- Arts & Culture-This cross-continental conversation zooms in on the longterm perspective of our humanity, while taking a look at the here and now. The session aims to tackle the following:
- What are fresh global visions on the future of our humanity?
- Who is making decisions today for our society of tomorrow?
- How are we creating more equitable futures that level the global playing field?
- Arts & Culture-Accessible 3D-print is here and available, yet the industrial revolution that was announced with it hasn’t taken place as we expected. How come? Changing the way we do things requires more than just having new technical possibilities at hand. Experts and users in each field have to discover the new applications in their own specific areas and convince themselves to take the leap and innovate, which requires openminded, courageous creativity.
- Arts & Culture-Most people will sleepwalk into the fully sensing world of the smart city. This session asks what kind of technological futures we are heading toward and how are designers, activists, technologists and policymakers creatively and critically responding?
- Arts & Culture-Street Art is often unfairly relegated to the realm of the criminal and only recognized as a means of illegal, criminal, vandalistic artistic expression. This conceptualization is unfortunate because Street Art SHOULD be acknowledged as a legitimate art form and pillar of global creative culture.
CANVASxDetroit's BOUNDLESS Street Art installation offers everyone an opportunity to learn + fully engage in the creative process. Each participant will be able to contribute to the Street Art canvas.
- Arts & Culture-In order for art to achieve maximum social impact, artists + government officials + corporations + non-profit organizations must work intelligently + collaboratively to envision + execute meaningful, accessible creative engagement opportunities that benefit ALL.
This session brings together key Detroit shareholders and international perspectives with the aim of identifying public barriers to art, collectively mitigating those factors, and creating solutions to improve art access/impact.
- Arts & Culture-“Limbo; or Existing Between the Lines” is a collaborative presentation by Claudia Owusu and Kuukua Eshun exploring the complexities of home and the many forms it takes for a child in the African diaspora. Through the short films “How Did Home Receive You?” (2018) and “Artist, Act of Love” (2019), Eshun and Owusu take on themes of solitude, heartbreak, and loneliness to question what it means to pledge allegiance to a nation, a person, a point in time, or the self.
- Arts & Culture-Since the 67 Uprising, the divides that separate Metro Detroit have significantly expanded. In recognition, the Detroit Historical Society launched Detroit 67. The Society collected the personal narratives of 500 Detroiters which became the backbone of the project. The exhibit, propelled by new levels of public engagement, embraced novel technology, digital avenues, and focused heavily on free web-based deliverables. This expanded commitment to accessible history was paramount to its success.
- Arts & Culture-Detroit-based artists have impacted soul, country, rock, hip-hop, classical, jazz, blues, techno and pop music for many decades. Musical titans and household names like Aretha Franklin, the White Stripes and Big Sean hail from Detroit. Like other industries, Detroit's music scene is changing; weaving history, tech, art and soul into its new style. Join Motown Musician Accelerator, a new initiative for emerging artists, on an interactive walk through Detroit's world renowned music scene.
- Arts & Culture-Calling artists, comics makers and comics enthusiasts - all experience levels! In this workshop participants will get to know one-another and work collectively to create several comic strips. Facilitated by Maamoul Press, a Detroit-based collective working in comics, printmaking and book arts, we will first engage in a group discussion about problems in the comics industry today and the power of comics as a tool for radical for-us-by-us storytelling, before diving into a fast-paced art workshop.
- Arts & Culture-This research talk presents a multi-component index of access that measures accessibility of culture as a community resource to the diverse populations in urban areas.
