3.90.155 Art-based Research in Nakivale Settlement/Uganda (Matteo Carbognani)


  • Di., 28.10.2014, 09:00 - 13:00
  • Mo., 27.10.2014, 14:00 - 18:00


EMMIR workshop open to students from other MA courses
Carried out by Matteo Carbognani and Carlos Morgado

Monday, 27 October, 14-18h (tbc)
Tuesday, 28 October, 9-13h (tbc)


This workshop will be divided into two parts. The first day will focus on the different dimensions of Nakivale and the potential role of Art Based Research in this setting; the second day will provide space for interaction, discussion and reflections of a potential continuation of what might have involuntarily started with Sauti Zetu – or art based research projects in other settings.
All this should have the ultimate goals of developing new ideas for creating continuity and sustainability, with a critical eye on ethics; and of providing students with as much information as possible and therefore orienting their internship preparation, however highlighting the fact that there's no way to plan everything in advance.
