AGORAS

Agoras are times of sharing and exchange between thinkers, cultural professionals, researchers, artists and audiences to reflect together, by crossing disciplines, on the interactions between art, science and society.

AGORA 1

Commons and responsibility

Moderation: Molemo Moiloa

Speakers: Achilles Mbembe - Dieynaba Gabrielle Ndiaye (SN) - Penny Travlou - Pierre Kahenga - Patrick Mudekereza - Alex Rubeola - Luciana Fleischman - Marion Louisgrand Sylla

Based on the projects carried out by three artistic organizations, Platohedro, Kër Thiossane and Waza, in collaboration with researchers, in their respective ecosystems, this discussion will invite a greater recognition of our own existing forms of sharing resources and relationships between humans or with our environments. It will be a question of better understanding them, but also of seeing how to better valorize them collectively, through art.
