TEH Camp Meeting 90

Open Up: Performing Culture in Contested Places As the world is still in semi-lockdown

Open Up: Performing Culture in Contested Places

As the world is still in semi-lockdown, we have decided to change the format of the meeting and its date. The new edition of TEH Camp Meeting 90 will happen online on 10-11 December. Yet, there will be talks, workshops and art performances live-streamed directly from Nicosia by NiMAC.

The theme of the meeting is “Open Up: Performing Culture in Contested Places”. During these two days, we will explore how, in this era of isolation and lockdowns, of divisions and partitions, of segregation and exclusion, culture could play an active role in opening up new forms of community relations waiting to emerge.


We have divided the programme into two days. The first one is curated by NiMAC and will focus on the local context and mostly be streamed from their studio in Nicosia. While the second day is for TEH members only and tackles the issues relevant for the network. Please, keep in mind that time in the programme is CET.
