Supporting an artistic practice

Deptford X
Unit A, 9 Brookmill Road SE8 4HL

In this session, Teresa Cisneros will share their knowledge around what it means for an artist to hold an institution accountable in order to achieve the best support for their work. Teresa will talk through how artists can create their own set of  terms and conditions and ask the institutions and organisations they work with to abide by them.

Participants are invited to bring questions and examples from their own experiences to discuss as a group.

Teresa Cisneros is a Chicana living in London.  An arts administrator by choice though she has practiced as a curator and an educator.  Cisneros has worked with many art institutions including Nottingham Contemporary, Tate, Spike Island and Serpentine to explore care, policy making, learning, and institutional change. In 2016-18 at The Showroom she curated Object Positions to explore cultural equity, decolonial processes and colonial administration. She is a part of agency for agency and is Inclusive Practice Lead at Wellcome Collection. She is interested in reconstructing cultural institutions from the inside to begin working towards forms of transformational justice.
