Reply To: Share your inspirations!
My name is Bryony Dixon, I am originally from the UK but now live and work on the traditional territories of the Snaw-Naw-As and Snuneymuxw First Nations (Vancouver Island, Canada). My academic interests primarily surround Drama and Film.
I have recently enjoyed diversifying my appreciation for performance arts offerings to include a more community based practice. I have been working for community focused arts organizations here for the past few years, and am motivated to explore opportunities for innovative artistic engagement in public spaces through digital and performance based initiatives. I’m interesting in blurring the boundaries between participation and spectatorship, encouraging active civic engagement through the arts.
I’d like to build upon the work of street performers/artists/site-specific performance works, and integrate accessible technological solutions that invite increased public participation in the arts. My inspirations include local arts festivals, large-scale public demonstrations, immersive installations and durational performances across multiple disciplines.
I am eager to see where this online course takes me, and how the knowledge gained can be applied to my work in the arts and culture sector.
