In The Roots is the second of a series of four online talks co-organised by artist/organiser Kate O’Shea and writer/researcher Enya Moore from the Just City Collective. It will take place on Tuesday 8th June at 10 – 11.30AM Dublin (IST), 7 – 8.30PM Sydney (AEST). Booking is through Eventbrite.
In the Roots brings together four speakers whose practices are embedded in places of connection, creating sustainable and abundant systems as well as community organisation around ecological concerns. In this shared online space, we will explore the perspectives, knowledge and experience they bring to their practices and communities in the diverse urban contexts.
The guest speakers are Alexandra Crosby and Ilaria Vanni (Mapping Edges), Nadeena Dixon (Gadigal, Wiradjuri and Yuin multi-disciplinary artist), and Seoidín O’ Sullivan (artist). The talk will be facilitated by Dr. Eve Olney (researcher, activist, creative producer and educator)
