Voices from Kännbart

Working on the Kännbart report and stumbled upon these quotes from the participants with sight- and/or hearing disabilities (aka "förstärkare"):


”Kännbart handlar inte bara om att kvotera in oss, att ge oss en gräddfil in i konstvärlden. Det handlar inte heller bara om syn- och hörselnedsättningar. Det handlar om att vi har unika erfarenheter och unika perspektiv.”

”Det här att jag har fått vara med i Kännbart, det har gett mig så himla mycket. Det har stort att jag har vågat en massa på grund av det - jag har sökt jobb, jag har sökt kurser. Det hade jag inte vågat innan.”
”Jag har arbetat med tillgänglighet för landstinget och det är skittråkigt, för det händer ingenting. Det här projektet har åstadkommit mycket mer, på mycket kortare tid.”
”Jag har gått igenom många processer i mitt liv, men det här året med Kännbart har varit en av de viktigaste. Jag har fått tillbaka modet, självförtroendet. Projekt Kännbart har gett mig en grund.”

”Jag är stolt för att jag förändrade mitt liv!”

Public talk about death

The first – and most complicated – seminar in Almedalen this year: A public talk about death in families. We thought that nobody would show up but it was a full house. And for 90 minutes, people shared their experiences without holding back. It was without a doubt the finest seminar I have ever organized.

Almedalsveckan - Almost there

The project plan for TA PLATS! at Almedalsveckan is almost done:

STÄDER
En utställning av Petter Wrigstad

”Bilderna skildra platser som jag har besökt. Några från en resa till Kroatien och Bosnien, en annan från Tyskland och några från Sverige. Vissa bilder är även inspirerade av England under Shakespears tid och av min fantasi.”
Plats: Almedalsbiblioteket
Datum: 1/7 – 7/7

VISITORS
En utställning av Lisa Jeannin & Rolf Schuurmans
The Visitors bestyår av de två filmerna “A tortoise and a traveler” (2009) och “Enlightened Encounter” (2010) är gjorda i stop-motion animation med super-8 och dv och visas efter varandra i en loop. Vi möter en sköldpadda, en resenär och 3 kedjerökande upplysta varelser som sedan reinkarneras till ett flertal mindre varelser. Filmerna utspelar sig på en trädgren, på en frusen sjö, på ett hav av lera och vid en lägereld men kanske i själva verket beskriver inre tillstånd av att vara på resande fot genom livet.
Plats: Galleri Gocart
Datum: 4/7

ATT LEVA MED NÄRHET TILL DÖDEN
Ett samtal om erfarenheter, strategier och möjligheter
Alla lever vi med närhet till döden, men vad händer när det blir påtagligt, när döden är här? Om det gäller en anhörig? Oss själva? Våra barn? Hur lever vi med det beskedet, själva och tillsammans med andra?
Deltagare:
Margaretha Blomgren, överläkare Enheten för barn- och ungdomsmedicin, Visby
Astrid Andersson Wretmark, sjukhuspräst, Visby församling
Ann Lagerström, journalist och författare
(Moderator: Po Hagström, konstnär och curator)
Plats: Galleri Gocart
Datum: 4/7 - 13:00 – 14:30

FILOSOFISKT CAFÉ PÅ LIV OCH DÖD
Ett filosofi-café som fångar upp ämnen från samtalet ”Att leva med närhet till döden” genom att lotsa oss genom frågor om människan, liv och död. Därefter följer en gemensam reflektion för publiken/café-besökarna med filosof Tulsa Jansson som samtalsledare.
Deltagare:
Tulsa Jansson, filosof och författare från Philosophy at Work
Plats: Galleri Gocart
Datum: 4/7 - 15:00 – 16:00

KULTUR OCH TILLGÄNGLIGHET
Varför kan inte alla människor i Sverige ta del av och påverka vårt samhälle? Varför accepterar vi den begränsningen när det gäller människor med funktionsnedsättningar? Är inte det odemokratiskt?
Under detta samtal diskuteras de utmaningar som tillgängligheten står för de kommande åren, och vilka möjligheter som finns med konst och kultur.

Deltagare:
Ylva Rosvall, enhetschef Habiliteringen i Visby
Teater Blanca från Uppsala: Magnus Dahlerus och Nilkas Morén berättar och ger smakprov på uppläsningar och teater.
Po Hagström, konstnär och curator för TA PLATS! berättar om konstprojekt och tillgänglighet.
Plats: Galleri Gocart
Datum: 5/7 - 14:00 – 15:00

TRE VISE APOR
Foton av Mats Melin, Ola Elmquist och Jesper Tottie
Enligt en gammal buddistisk myt sänder gudarna tre apor till jorden för att speja och vara speciella observatörer. Aporna valde att inte se, inte öra och inte tala, för att gudarna skulle vara förlåtande mot jordens varelser. I väst har man oftast tolkat myten som underlåtenhet att berätta om orättvisor eller missförhållanden.
Vi väljer att inte göra som aporna utan sätter ett litet frågetecken efter ”Inte se, inte höra, inte säga”. Iaktta eller inkludera? Hur gör du?

Plats: Galleri Gocart
Datum: 5/7

Nacka this week #3

Studio 44 turns 10 years old

  • Studio 44 turns 10 years old 2013. They are now gathering previous projects for their anniversary and contacted me and Janna because of our effort to formalize the gallery in 2006. Lets see if Trial and Error can find a way to participate at Studio 44 again?

Cia to Valand

  • Cia got a well deserved place at Valand art academy.
  • Ok, I was not involved in her applications, I was only a mentor through Innovativ kultur, but that doesn't make me any less happy! :-)

Almedalsveckan takes shape

  • Working all day with Almedalsveckan. Amazing how many things can both work out - and not...

Different projects in Nacka this week

These last days we have discussed several projects in Nacka:
  • What kind of art do we need at Isis pre school? Reasoning led us to a certain focus and we will probably choose an artist May 17, to work with their outdoor environment.
  • Älta kulturknut has limited time now to include their children (80% of all visitors) in an art project. Perhaps we will choose an artist May 23?
  • Budget for the prestigious art project at Kvarnholmen. Sketch is done, lets evaluate it!
  • Kulingen pre school need to reorganize their spaces. What about the art they've got?
