Culture for All has a new employee
Arlene Tucker’s socially engaged work utilises Translation Studies, Semiotics, and Feminist Practices. “As an artist, educator, and diversity agent, I realise my art through installation and dialogical practices. Always a co-creation with the public, my work allows us to share perspectives about identity and belonging through different mediums and approaches such as memories, hair, and letter writing. My work (i.e. Knots, Story Data, Translation is Dialogue) brings people together worldwide through a process-based artistic practice and makes all voices heard.” She holds a BFA in Film, Video and Painting from Savannah College of Art and Design, an MA in Semiotics from University of Tartu and received her teacher certification from Helsinki University. Tucker has been based in Finland since 2011.
The application period to join the Diversity Agent 2.0 course will open in the beginning of September. Diversity Agents address a range of challenging and crucial issues society and individuals face such as structural racism, lack of equality and accessibility. As changemakers and organizers, Diversity Agents offer ways to reflect, to find tools and to implement how we can work towards a more equitable society. More information about the program and application process will be announced at the end of August.
The project also pilots a low-treshold online diversity clinics to support art and cultural actors in diversity, inclusion and anti-racist work. More information about the clinics will be given later in Autumn.
The project is coordinated by Culture for All Service and realized together with Globe Art Point.
