Join 3 female artist-researcher-runners Dr Kai Syng Tan, Annie Grove-White and Dr Carali McCall in 3 energising events in 3 cities.
Run! Run! Run! Biennale 2016 #r3fest kicks off at Leeds with a discussion on Monday 21 November 2-4pm at Leeds College of Art. Drawing on the current (anti)migrant crisis, global endurance athletic activities and artist Jun Nguyen-Hatsushiba’s seminal performance Breathing is Free: 12,756.3 (ongoing since 2007, an attempt to physically experience world refugee crisis by running the diameter of the earth, 12,756.3km), we ask: How does running (dis)connect people across borders?
Presentations and discussions with academics, artists and friends from the running community include: Stephanie Case (Free To Run), Dr Debbie Lisle (Queen's University Belfast), Dr Doug Sandle (Fields of Vision), Dr Karen Throsby (University of Leeds), Dr Lisa Stansbie (Leeds Beckett University), and Sarah Brown (Leeds Art Gallery).
