5 Blackwood St,
Sit down to a dinner party on the final day of FOLA, with words and ideas as the food; pick up dangling conversations and muse on the unfinished business of the festival.
A durational performance installation developed by UK/US artist, Lois Weaver, The Long Table is both public debate and informal conversation on serious subjects. Everyone is invited – from artists to activists to audiences. Contribute your thoughts on the themes, issues and concerns you’ve seen emerging during FOLA: money and power, gender and sex, activism, visibility and more.
The topics are powerful – so too is the challenge to speak your mind and to listen to each other.
