Youth Collective Events: Public Programming

Youth Collective Events: Public Programming

6 December 2017

Wednesday 6 December, 6.00 - 8.30pm, Artists’ Studio 

For the second edition of the new series Youth Collective Events, we invite Public Programme and Residencies Curator Nisha Matthew to discuss what it means to curate and deliver live events for varying audiences.

During the evening, performance artist Jenny Moore will share some of her experiences making live artworks for public programmes – both the frustrations and the victories. Through workshopping, discussion, making noise, and moving around, Jenny Moore will demonstrate some of her approaches to making performances, transforming space, and being in public space. 

Find out what's involved in curating a public programme event, Camden Arts Centre's artist residencies and public programme and the strategies involved in event planning, marketing and delivery.

Our Youth Collective Events series offers people aged between 15 – 25 years the opportunity to engage and learn about matters surrounding contemporary art and artistic production through a series of workshops, talks, interventions and screenings.

Nisha Matthew is the Programme Curator for Public Programme and Residencies at Camden Arts Centre, working closely with artists to curate and deliver live events.

Jenny Moore is a Canadian artist and musician based in London. With performance at its core, her practice is live, embodied, improvised, and noisy. She plays in the all-female, all-drum band Charismatic Megafauna; and collaborates on Bedfellows; an artistic research project about life-long queer feminist sex-re-education. Moore recently wrote, directed and recorded a performance 10 voices and two drummers commissioned by Wysing Polyphonic 2016, ran an educational performance space in an occupied firestation in Norway, and has performed at Serpentine Gallery, BFI London with Jarvis Cocker, Block Universe Performance Festival, London; Metaphonica, Central Saint Martins; The Barbican with This is Not This Heat, and made a series of live interventions for Late at Tate Britain. She went to art school twice, once in Winnipeg, once in London.

On the first Wednesday of every month artists and arts practitioners will be invited to host the evening and share their knowledge, skills and experiences as a way of expanding professional development opportunities.

The series is designed for you to:
• Gain access to artists and arts professionals in the creative industries
• Programme your own event
• Develop new skills and knowledge in relation to the arts and opportunities in the arts sector
• Build confidence in creating your own arts practice
• Meet new and like-minded people and cultivate a peer network

Our Youth Collective continue to meet on Saturdays during the exhibitions from 2.30 - 5.00pm. Find out more.
