The Britishness Project, The Alternative School of Economics, with Firstsite & The Gilberd School, 2019

As part of a series of events running in the lead-up to the Art Licks Weekend 2019, artists Ruth Beale and Amy Feneck present Challenging interdependence: structures for working together - a workshop and discussion responding to the Art Licks Weekend theme of Interdependence, asking the questions:

Who are you dependant on? Who depends on you? 
What do you value about your interdependence?
What is undervalued?
Ruth Beale and Amy Feneck began The Alternative School of Economics in 2012 as an artistic project using the practice of self-education to study economics, creating a framework for investigating political, social and cultural issues. Ruth and Amy will be joining Gasworks as the next Participation Artists in Residence in September 2019 developing a project with women across Lambeth and Southwark to explore feminist economics.

Art Licks is a not-for-profit organisation based in London that supports the development of artists’ practices and gives voice to the under-represented activities that form the grassroots of visual culture in the UK. For its seventh year, the annual Art Licks Weekend festival (17–20 October) invites artists and curators to respond to the theme of Interdependence, which describes the expanding number of cultural projects in the UK created within a network of friendship, exchange and shared dialogue. The festival will include exhibitions and events programmed by 62 participating project spaces and collectives across London. Read more on the Art Licks website.
