The HI Performance Research Workshop is honored to organize this Humanities to the Rescue symposium in tandem with the visit of Nick Cave (2019-20 Eileen Silvers Visiting Professor in the Arts and Humanities).
Taking as inspiration Nick Cave’s artistic-activist praxis, the “Performance, Publics, Possibility” symposium explores arts and humanities-based practices of imagining and enacting more equitable and just social formations by way of performance’s capacities to engage publics. Please join us for a day of performances, panels, and camaraderie. Brunch is included.
