During this Kitchen Table Conversation we will see some of the results of interesting student projects. Highlights will be selected and reflected upon by today's guest, photographer and filmmaker Kevin Osepa. He will discuss the concepts of home and displacement and talk about working methods and ethics.
In earlier Kitchen Table Conversations we have been exploring strategies for artists to connect with the surrounding world, kindly (or less kindly) exposing blind spots, strengthening people’s resistance to stereotypes, or developing new ways to enhance a sense of belonging. How can artists-educators contribute to a more equitable society?
Students of the Teacher Department Theatre are working in different projects, like the Nomad project (in collaboration with theatre makers PeerGroup and other partners) and Xchange. What strategies did they adopt? What insights did they acquire?
Students of Illustration Design are delving into these themes as well, in a two weeks’ project with visual artist Douwe Dijkstra and journalist Sjoerd Litjens on illustrated podcasts around the themes Home and Belonging. They will interview family members and translate their stories into visual podcasts.
