Thursday 28 April 2022
12.30 pm – 2.30 pm
Online (zoom) & in The NewBridge Project Gallery space
The event will be led by gobscure, NewBridge’s Practice makes Practice artist in residence 2022 with Kaleidoscope Network
they love choke points & creative resistances. choke points are blockages that disrupt systems. this book is a key inspiration & theres a podcast too.
members and staff of Eastside Projects, Primary, Spike Island, The NewBridge Project and non members are cordially invited to join a laid-back conversation to address our own choke-points (how do we tip over the things that piss us off?)
the event will begin softly with time for people to get settled.
we’ll dine together, remotely, for about half an hour, then gobscure will lead further guided activity (including listening to Run the Jewels & discussing their advice on local choke points).
do bring local examples to share – these may be successful campaigns or things you’d like to tip over … (bristol jury finding the colston statue topplers not guilty, wearing hyena & petticoat mask in birmingham to honor mary wollstonecraft, kicking sand around nottingham-on-sea centre in the 90’s are on our radar for e.g.)
gobscure’s been ranting for the last two years for DAO (disability arts online) here’s 12 of their tipping points (audio & transcripts):
although zoom will be open for 2 hours, the atmosphere will be gentle and focussed activities will only take part of this time. there’ll be a screenbreak in the middle & a soft exit for people to drift away or stay and continue the chat
a live captioner will be provided
NewBridge can offer a small lunch stipend for whoever requires (please specify when selecting you ticket)
gobscure would also like to post a pack of materials out to you so there’s a ticket option to register with your address.
