And still, we move
How can an arts organisation do more to carve out space for specific community groups and individuals who identify as coming from marginalised backgrounds? The Pier Residency at Lighthouse was an experiment to carve out such a space. This text is a journal that has been written in collaboration with the artists that took part in the residency, as well as artists working with Lighthouse as a result of the call, and the Lighthouse team and trustees.
This article is part of the Re-Imagine Europe publication. The publication collects articles, essays, interviews and reports about audience engagement for interdisciplinary arts organisations. It aims to share knowledge gained throughout the Re-Imagine Europe project with professionals in the cultural sector who would like to gain a deeper insight in audience development and capacity building.
