This broadcast event will be followed by a Q&A, please submit your questions via YouTube chat, via our Live Channel.
In Sustaining Uncertainty, cultural producer Siddharth Khajuria (Barbican, UK) will reflect on nurturing and protecting space for the unknown within arts institutions. Through a series of short conversations with creative practitioners, he’ll explore ways of subverting models of production that often require predictability and classification by art form. The event will also offer the chance to discuss your own experiences of cultural production, and curating at the edges of classification.
Siddharth Khajuria is a cultural producer and programmer. In his role at the Barbican, he’s responsible for a public programme of socially-focused exhibitions, events and research projects which (mostly) happen in and around the arts centre’s vast foyer spaces. These projects often emerge from new communities of creative practitioners — writers, researchers, artists, curators and others — coming together to co-create a cultural project exploring a specific theme or question they share an interest in. He’s also the co-founder of a new charity, Grand Plan, which awards £1,000 grants to artists of colour to realise creative projects from Spring 2021 onwards. He lives in north-east London with his partner and two children.
