Rules of Engagement

Abstract : Borrowing from the military meaning of the phrase, Aoife van Linden Tol will discuss how an artist or facilitator of an experience you effectively write your own 'rules of engagement' for each project, performance, work or workshop. Who and why you engage and what the outcome might be are dictated by you. Aoife will examine the motivations, parameters responsibilities for engaging audiences using examples of different approaches she has used and why. Opening for discussion ideas of responsibility as well as understanding the public face of a project vs it's hidden motivations.
