Leading a year long inquiry into the role that the performing arts play in fomenting social changes, the UK based multi-media art collaborative motiroti will convene a series of community meetings at historic sites of radical intervention including Columbia College, Dorchester Project, Hull House, and En Las Tablas. Additionally, in the fall, they will host a discussion on the efficacy of their actions and share strategies on running non-for–profit arts agencies.
Conceived by motiroti as the Critical Encounters’ Artist in Residence, the Potluck project relies on collaboration with Columbia College Chicago, The Dorchester Project, En Las Tablas, and the Jane Addams Hull-House Museum; it is a menu of creative adventures – food exchanges, art workshops and public gatherings – that aim to bridge cultural divides, build a toolkit for increasing social connections, and kick start new communities.
