COMING UP: SUMMER SCHOOL
PREVIOUS: Project Network Workshop in Iceland
The Network Workshop took place from 25 until 27 March 2022 at (and was organised by) the University of Iceland (UoI) in Reykjavik, Iceland. Due to the Covid-19 related limitations the Workshop marked the first time, the entire network would meet in person together and it was therefore a very important event in the history of the FEINART project.
The first day was dedicated to internal workshop trainings with three sessions that were followed by group work involving all participants present. The topics discussed during the first day included a reflection on the programme so far with space for all participants to share their personal experiences.
The second day was designed as an open conference with the following guest speakers: Fatin Farhan, Margrét Elísabet Ólafsdóttir, Mirwan Andan and Ajeng N Aini, members of ruangrupa, Thomas Pausz and Æsa Sigurjónsdóttir, followed by a general discussion. Four FEINART Early-Stage Researchers (ESRs) were assigned to give a reply for each speaker and being involved in the general discussion: Claude Nassar, Fabiola Fiocco, Sophie Mak-Schram and Marteinn Jonsson. The day ended with a reception for symposium attendees and a dinner. The event was livestreamed on the University of Iceland website and a recording can be found on this site along with pictures.
The last day of the workshop took the form of a cultural experience tour through various locations in Iceland and in meeting local artists. This programme was envisioned to both address the team-building aspect of the network as well as to get a deeper understanding of the cultural heritage and modern arts scene in Iceland.
All pictures from the symposium on Saturday 26 March 2022 were taken by Gunnar Sverrisson.
