Light+ Collective Imaginings Episode 2
Jamila Prowse leads a series of conversations with young and emerging artists, curators and arts professionals, all of whom face specific barriers to accessing the arts. The series consider how these cultural contributors work to break down barriers to the arts through their own work, as well as the strategies and support systems they have personally developed for surviving in the arts.
In light of COVID-19, the series brings together dialogues around the wider precariousness of the arts, and thinks through how and whether artists and arts practitioners are continuing to make work and make ends meet in these increasingly uncertain times.
In the second episode, Jamila talks to Jemma Desai and discusses their experiences of navigating hostile and inhospitable institutions, and ways we have found to protect our imaginations and resist capitalist productivity.
