PUSH YOUR PRACTICE, DISCOVER THE SENSES
The Open Senses Symposium brings together an interdisciplinary group of practitioners and artists exploring sensory practice. The event features exhibition stalls, panel discussions, pop-up talks and experiences showcasing work in academia, inclusive practice, scent, food, medicine, theatre, music, law, restaurants, typography, dance … and more.
The goal of the Symposium is to challenge, demonstrate and interrogate how sensory practice is capable of building greater connection to the world, our environment, the people around us and ourselves.
Prolific Finnish architect and author of The Eyes of the Skin, Juhani Pallasmaa, is delivering a keynote talk at the Symposium. He believes that “the Open Senses Festival is an important platform for questioning our culture and the constitution of art.”
