Conference and Performance Events
In London for the first time, PSi #12 Performing Rights will focus on questions of performance and human rights and will feature plenary addresses, numerous panels and a diverse programme of Performance Events.
Bringing together curators, policy makers and directors of some of London's key cultural agencies and institutions, alongside artists, activists and thinkers from all over the world, this event will be a unique crossing between the arts, the academy, activism and public policy.
Human rights are too important to leave to the politicians. How does performance practice and thinking open up new possibilities for the understanding, enactment and sustenance of human rights? Queen Mary, University of London will become an open, public platform where the making and unmaking of human rights can be debated and performed.
The conference will present the work of participants from over thirty different countries including: Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, India, Indonesia, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Lebanon, Malaysia, Mexico, Morocco, New Zealand, Nigeria, Pakistan, Romania, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, UK, USA, and Zimbabwe.
Over four hundred participants are anticipated for this conference and hundreds more will come to the galleries, installations, performances and workshops that will be run throughout the four days.
