Recorded live at the ICAF NEW MKRS Festival’23 in Islemunda, Rotterdam, “The art of community” is a lecture by Theron Schmitt that looks at both the philosophical and practical implications of working with, and as part of, a community.
Theron’s lecture is based upon the questions: what can community art learn from other approaches to intentional group formation, such as from social movements and collective activism? And, just as importantly, how can creative methods of community art invite us to think more expansively about how we might gather together, whether or not that is an a specifically “artistic” context?
