NICC Talk: Parenthood

A panel discussion with Cleo Fariselli, Yannick Ganseman, Olivia Hernaïz

02.06.2023, 15:00 — 17:00 Discussion

Organised by NICC in collaboration with Kunsthal Extra City and with the support of the Flemish Government.

Are you an artist with children? Or do you work with artists who have children and would like to be child-friendly? Then be sure to come listen to the NICC Talk: Parenthood.

During a panel discussion - that will be held in English - three artists; Cleo Fariselli, Yannick Ganseman and Olivia Hernaïz will each highlight a different aspect of what it means to be a parent as an artist. The three sub-topics are:

  • Collaborations with presentation institutions
  • (Child-friendly) artist residencies
  • Parenthood/fatherhood as a theme in the artistic practice

Important to note is that you (the audience) will help determine the input for the panel discussion. You can do so by filling out this questionnaire about what it means to be a parent as an artist. The deadline for this is 26.05.2023.

Based on the NICC Talk: Parenthood we want to produce a model document afterwards that can serve as a basis for negotiations with institutions. The document may include very concrete proposals such as providing flexible build-up hours consistent with having a child.

This NICC Talk will take place in the bar of Kunsthal Extra City. There's limited capacity, so if interested please subscribe via [email protected].
