The Greenhouse Sessions #4
The Ethics of Practice
Participatory arts practices often involve working with communities which may lead to ethical challenges: Is the artist’s role to make art or to fix problems? Where do our loyalties lie when the interests of the funder does not align with those of the community? Are we conscious of whether a community is co-opted, represented or exploited in the process of art-making? Who is the author of a collaborative artwork? How do we practise power? How do we make meaning out of these disparate parts?
The role of ethics is a crucial piece when engaging communities. In this session, we reflect on the values that inform our practice, identify key ethical dilemmas and discover ways to transform challenges into opportunities for learning.
