TEH Camp Meeting 90
Open Up: Performing Culture in Contested Places
As the world is still in semi-lockdown, we have decided to change the format of the meeting and its date. The new edition of TEH Camp Meeting 90 will happen primarily online on 10-11 December. Yet, there will be talks, workshops and art performances live-streamed directly from Nicosia by NiMAC.
The theme of the meeting is “Open Up: Performing culture in contested places”. During these two days, we will explore how, in this era of isolation and lockdowns, of divisions and partitions, of segregation and exclusion, culture could play an active role in opening up new forms of community relations to emerge.
Our Camp Meeting will happen during the local annual cultural event – Pop-up Festival (7-31 December). The participants of the meeting will be able to enjoy curated talks, panels, workshops and live-stream art performances from the festival. It would also be a great opportunity to learn more about local context and unique story of Nicosia.
We are currently working on the programme. To stay in the loop please FOLLOW our Facebook event. We will post all programme updates and highlights there.
You can also download a TEH Mobile App (available in Apple Store and Google Play) to get all the latest event news directly in your phone. Plus, the app is a great way to stay connected with our participants.
Participation will be free of charge. We will open registration SOON!
