Ways of Being Together – A discussion led by Jo Fong

Join Jo for a table discussion – the kitchen table is where many a good idea will start. This gathering is suitable for artists from any genre music, dance, visual arts, film… or perhaps you are someone who is interested in the question, What is Community? Jo is interested in spontaneity, authentic encounters and drawing on our own experiences. She wants to stimulate fresh conversation, empowerment and action, creating an art action or a pledge, something positive however small or potentially groundbreaking. This project stimulates conversation around collaboration, participation, inclusivity… We have also talked about parties, friendship, responsibility, gardens, permaculture and other things.
As part of China Changing there will conversations about “Chineseness” in Britain.
Presence. Visibility. Audibility.

Suitable for all aged 16+.
