ARE YOU A *RADICAL* CREATIVE WORKING ACROSS: LIVE ART PERFORMANCE DANCE THEATRE SOUND FILM AND JUGGLING WORKING LIFE WITH CHILDREN LIKE A FUCKING BEAST... THEN WE NEED YOU!
This is an early stage call for parents of all genders with diverse heritages to make themselves known, to help shape F E R A L through conversation to activate real changes in the arts. It is important to us that we develop a network of allies within and across our fields, creating a platform of practitioners creating exciting and challenging work which isn't solely (or even at all) about our experiences of parenting.
The organisation will be focused on supporting and platforming artists who are parents (focusing on main carers and single parents) and will aim to address the complexities and practicalities of managing life as a parent. F E R A L aims to work together on both an individual and group basis to develop innovative and attainable solutions to support and sustain an element of self-care, which is all so important (and often slips because of these demands), so that you can continue to develop and show new work.
From remote and hosted events, we will pool together the results from discussions and develop resources to begin to address festivals and organisations head on, sharing and implementing well overdue strategies for sustainability.
