This workshop tackles the way artists and cultural makers can survive in times of adversity. International government policy, with few exceptions, seems to view cultural funding as the first in line for cuts when times are difficult, such as during the Covid-19 pandemic. Yet art and culture are often what keep us sane in an insane world. Why does this happen?
How do you keep your art practice from being overwhelmed by financial crises and times of adversity?

We will look at:

  • Ways to ride a financial crisis as an artist
  • Transforming adversity into opportunity in difficult times
  • Decision-making processes: how to fall on your feet in overwhelming circumstances
  • Alternative art worlds: ways the art environment changes in adversity
  • The workshop will include theory and hands-on exercises to give artists the tools to ride against the tide when needed.

Emilia Telese is an artist & lecturer based in Reykjavík.

She is a lecturer specialising in the relationship between art, economics and professional practice at more than ten UK and Italian institutions. She represented practising artists on the Arts Council England Regional Council until 2013. She has led nationwide debate events about art, politics and social engagements. She holds an AHRC award PhD doctorate in Social Science at the University of Loughborough, with a Collaborative Doctorate Award research project which looks at the idea of artists’ social and economic value.

As artist, she has exhibited worldwide since 1994, including in the New Forest Pavilion at the 51st Venice Biennale (Venice, Italy), Ars Electronica (Linz, Austria), ZKM (Karlsruhe, Germany), Chashama (New York City, USA), Centro Cultural Telemar (Rio De Janeiro, Brazil), Manege (St Petersburg, Russia), Leeds City Gallery, ArtSway(New Forest, UK) and the Freud Museum (London UK).
Her work has been presented at major events at Tate Britain, Royal Festival Hall, and her practice includes socially engaged practice, interactive and body-responsive technology, film and live art, installation, literature and public art.

Often site specific, Telese’s work deals with conscious engagement, political and social debate, non-verbal communication and the questioning and deconstruction of behaviour. She was invited by Michelangelo Pistoletto to create an artwork for the first Rebirth Day in 2012. Her video piece Life Begins At Land’s End was shown at the Louvre as part of his exhibition Michelangelo Pistoletto: Annee’ Un – Le Paradis Sur Terre in June 2013.
