Futures of Care – Artist Co-commissions and Care Labs

 
 

Creative Estuary Co-commissions is supporting a wide range of cultural projects with new commissions for Estuary-based producers and artists, from activity for emerging cultural activists to large scale commissions. Futures of Care is one such commission.

Futures of Care is People United’s collaborative, multi-arts programme exploring radical care – taking place across East Kent and online. As part of Creative Estuary Co-commissions, in early 2022 People United will commission five socially engaged artists from a range of lived experiences and backgrounds to creative brand new artworks on the theme of “care”. Following the artwork’s release in Spring 2022 a series of “Care Labs” will invite artists, producers, researchers to collaboratively create a blueprint for what caring practices in the creative sector could look like.
