A Season of Care is series of events, residencies and talks with care, in all its forms, at the centre. Care as conceptual rationale and as collective provocation.
This program will ensure care is investigated in 'crip time' and from intersectional perspectives, creating a network of new knowledges. Tian Zhang’s, ‘A manifesto for radical care or how to be a human in the arts’ (Sydney Review of Books) and Care Work: Dreaming Disability Justice by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha are touchstones.
The program is supported by the ‘Curatorium of Care,' a non-hierarchical support structure from which this program will grow. Members include: Riana Head-Toussaint, Tian Zhang, Hannah Donnelly, Hareen Johl, Eddie Abd, Celine Cheung and Jessica Olivieri.
We invite you to gather with us, for an evening of offerings, relaxed performances, food-sharing and making, led by artists from a Season of Care residency.
Participating artists include: Alex Craig, Aimée Falzon, Gabriela Green Olea, Ju Bavyka, Naomi Segal and Paula Do Prado.
Date: 5th November
Location: Utp, 5 Olympic Parade, Bankstown NSW 2200
We opened with Crip Rave Theory – a euphoric intersectional dance party for all bodies and genders, on 15th April at PACT.
A critique of care, an embrace of care and a new kind of being together. The second phase of A Season of Care, saw seven artists in residence over the first week of May. They will discuss and develop their practice though the lens of care over one week at Utp's home base in Bankstown.
May residency artists include: Alex Craig, Aimée Falzon, Imogen Yang, Ju Bavyka, Naomi Segal, Paula Do Prado and Tania Khouri.
October residency artists include: Alex Craig, Aimée Falzon, Gabriela Green Olea, Ju Bavyka, Naomi Segal and Paula Do Prado.
