SWOP is collaborating with SOMA in Mexico in hosting an online programme of conversations between artists, curators, researchers, academics and activists, that grew out of a planned Summer School on Social Justice that would have taken place in Mexico in October this year - the poster for the event is here below. Helena Chavez Macgregor, who was at SWOP for a short time last year, will facilitate these sessions from Mexico. Each conversation will be livestreamed - a new link will be shared every week on the SWOP website together with an outline of the theme to be discussed for the following week's session.


Conversations will happen in Spanish and English,  every Thursday in July and August this year, beginning on 2 July. The livestreams will be recorded, subtitled and then shared on the SWOP website.
