Festival, Workshop: 20 / 07 / 2018 - 27 / 07 / 2018
Location: TENT

DIVERGE is a multimedia art festival with musicians, thinkers and makers operating outside the mainstream. What does it mean to deviate from the prevailing culture? What can we learn from communities that stand by the norms? Organizer Rae Parnell, writer-performer Naomi Veldwijk, podcaster Mariam El Maslouhi and artist Keith King, Nazrina Rodjan, Strict Nurse and Manuel Ricardo Garcia present an exhibition as a setting for a series of workshops. Participants are invited to share knowledge and talk about representation and justice and the making of art.
