Each of the events directly link to the works in the first issue of A(r)t Home Zine: Food for Thought which is being re-sold as part of the Festival — although the zine does not need to be owned in order to participate.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, the contemporary art experience has gone digital. While this allows for the long-awaited, increased accessibility within the arts, it has resulted in little to no tangible interactions. The purpose of each of these events is to allow for the audience to engage with contemporary art in alternative ways that still allow for interaction and connection with others, from their own home. The workshop and socialising events are community-building and engaging, allowing for participants to have informal conversation with strangers. Hosting these events online also ensure the safety of participants from Covid-19.
Louise Muriel Burns (b. 1996) is an artist, curator and researcher, currently studying within the MLitt Curatorial Practice (Contemporary Art) programme at Glasgow School of Art & Glasgow University, due to graduate at the end of 2021.
