Open Senses - Ideas in Progress - JUNE
Friday 8 June

IN A NUTSHELL
An evening showcasing new, cutting-edge projects and ideas, often in embryonic and raw forms, to stimulate and challenge the senses.
Open Senses was launched in May 2017 as the world’s first festival dedicated to sensory practice and research - uniting a diverse group of practitioners dedicated to exploring the senses. Open Senses: Ideas in Progress is a chance to bring the community together on a regular basis, with the goal of opening up pathways for experimentation and collaboration.
This event is an informal space to play and test out ideas and new work. We encourage applications from artists, musicians, neurologists, psychologists, SEN workers, animators, chefs, perfumers and any practitioner working with the senses. We are keen to respond to the latest research and developments in the world of sensorial practice. Each event lasts 2 hours and includes four presentation slots plus time to discuss and workshop ideas with the group.
Open Senses: Ideas in Progress is a series of events throughout 2018, all hosted at Rich Mix, which will build organically towards the next Open Senses Festival in 2019.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The event will feature different artists, musicians, academics, scientists, creative groups and inclusive companies, divided into four slots of 20 minutes each. Audience members will be encouraged to engage and experiment with the presenters, to be actively involved in the workshopping and discussion of the work presented.
Open Senses is the world’s first festival devoted to sensorial practice and research, launched in May 2017 at 25 London venues.
