Season for Ex-Change Two
A conversation with Joon Lyn Goh and Kinsi Abdulleh on community organising and the arts
Activism is nothing unless it’s meaningfully tied to the communities it aims to serve. But how does that happen within an art context? Joon Lyn Goh and Kinsi Abdulleh, both organisers and arts workers, will be in conversation to look at their careers and approaches, and discuss co-option and activation in the arts and beyond.
