Going Public is a website involving films and interviews with over twenty community based practitioners. We reached out to a range of socially engaged practitioners involved in theatre, film, new media and history to explore the political, aesthetic and performative dimensions of their work. What are the creative and ethical challenges they face? What are possibilities for community-university collaborations? What are strategies when addressing sensitive issues like genocide, human rights abuses or gender discrimination? What are the tools and methods we use to get work to diverse publics across multiple platforms? Practicioners from around the world reflect on the process, the art and the significance of Going Public in an era of multimedia authorship.
