Encouraging dialogue around culture, making art accessible
Author: Máté Tenke
Máté is a Joint Honours Student at the University of Glasgow in Theatre Studies and Politics. Aiming to combine the creativity of arts and the analytical thinking of social sciences, he looks for innovative ways in which art can contribute to societal well-being. He hopes to promote interdisciplinary collaboration and a collective sense of responsibility among people which he finds essential in political systems based on participation. His main interests involve post-colonial theory, sustainable development and post-development discourses, and applied theatre and education. He is currently working on an international exhibition series presenting the history of electrographic art and a video-performance dealing with isolation and a wide-shared sense of desperation for physical contact due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
