Bek Berger: Independent Convergence

Arts : State of the Art  for Wednesday 8 February 2017, 8:30am

Artists Bek Berger, Dan Koop and Kieran Swann first conceived Independent Convergence in May 2015, as a day-long conference where independent artists could form a creative community that thinks differently.

'This year, we would like to centre our conversations on the topic of ‘responsibility’.

In a connected world, what is our responsibility to the local spaces of our daily lives, and the global spaces that influence our lives?

In a complex society, what is our responsibility to the communities that we belong to, and the communities around us?

In a place where many cultures meet, what is our responsibility to the tradition(s) that we’ve inherited, and our responsibility to experiment?

In a fast changing world, what is our responsibility to maintain personal consistency, and what is our responsibility to adapt and respond?

In a world of many voices, what is our responsibility to speak and our responsibility to listen?'

Tune in on Wednesday 8 February at 83:am to hear Bek Berger chat about investigating the realities of being an independent artist in Australia at Independent Convergence 2017.
