Resurface: Hypericum: A Code of Practice
In this talk, representatives from the Hypericum Working Group introduced the Hypericum: A Code of Practice, a long-term research project developing a collectively produced, ever-evolving code of practice for feminist, antiracist, anti-colonial and environmentally sustainable arts organising.
The project is currently led by a Working Group of UK based arts workers and small-scale organisations: Angela Chan, Divya Osbon, Anjali Prashar-Savoie, Jamila Prowse, la Sala and Obsidian Coast. Bringing together existing knowledge that already informs creative and community organising practices across different contexts and communities, Hypericum envisions arts organising practices that centre care, generosity, solidarity and sustainability, and dismantle hetero/cissexist patriarchy, white supremacy, ableism, capitalist extraction and accelerated production.
The first draft of the Code of Practice was shared as an online platform in 2021.
This conversation was part of Resurface, our conversations programme looking at how we work together and reshape the future of art.
