Care to learn about experimental approach to (artistic) feedback in a communal setting? Would you like to map out needs, resonances and lineages in relation to your practice? Do you want to contribute to research questions posed by queer artists and researchers?

We are happy to welcome peers, educators, artists and friends to join an open afternoon organized by IPOP and participants of the third edition of Queer Feedback Sessions. The program will resemble the rhythm of our collaboration. We will share practices of attunement, facilitate encounters with artistic research projects, eat and rest together and give insight into ways of giving, offering and re-approaching feedback we practiced.

Queer Feedback Sessions are intended to nurture a group of performing artists and researchers who understand themselves or their work as in some way "queer" or "LGBT+ and are invited to engage with each other’s practices on a deeper level.

This edition gave special attention to the role of care and attunement in creating a setting for feedback. How is care needed, and where does care manifest? Given the contemporary focus on safer space facilitation and communal care, alex blum bertelsen has traced what notions of trauma and safety might underpin the promiscuous care that's being practiced within a temporary community such as the Queer Feedback Sessions. Here, she'll share some questions and possible orientations for braver, more caring spaces.
