A three-day workshop (2007)

‘What happens when artists and anthropologists are asked to do something together rather than talk from the safety of their own practice?’ Anna Grimshaw, Connecting Art and Anthropology participant.

The Connecting Art and Anthropology (CAA) workshop brought together 14 international artists and anthropologists to explore some possible answers to this question. Over three days in January 2007 participants used active forms of dialogue and response to uncover connections and overlaps between their socially responsive practices.

This website documents and reflects on the workshop, presenting the original programme and brief for shared activity along with transcripts, images, questions and reports generated by the event alongside an essay and a specially commissioned sound notebook.
