With growing international interest in city resilience, we invite you to join us for a conversation on the ways in which the arts contribute to the resilience of New Orleans. How do artists in the city engage, implicitly or explicitly, in ideas and practices of resilience? What can the arts reveal about resilience in this city? Indeed, what do the arts reveal about the city and its cultures more broadly? Whether you’re engaged in making, watching, writing or thinking about the arts in the city, we invite you to pull up a chair, have a drink and join us for a conversation on the art and performance of resilience in New Orleans.
This event will be led by Patrick Duggan and Stuart Andrews, both from the University of Surrey (UK), who are exploring the ways in which the arts can contribute to emerging definitions and practices of city resilience (www.performingcityresilience.wordpress.com). The event is free to attend and liquid refreshments will be provided.
This event is sponsored by the Institute of Performance and Urban Living, University of Surrey.
