Commons from the Souths: discussion panel Speakers: Dieynaba Gabrielle Ndiaye (Université Cheikh Anta Diop de Dakar, Senegal) - Penny Travlou (Edinburgh College of Art) - Pierre Kahenga (Fondation Communautaire du Katanga, DR Congo) Art Organisations: Ker Thiossane - Waza - Platohedro Moderator: Molemo Moiloa This discussion is based on the production of audio & video series on the common good produced by three arts organisations of Arts Collaboratory:Platohedro, Kër Thiossane and Waza in their southern contexts. This discussion between the researchers with whom each organisation has collaborated, engages with what is understood as common good in our societies today, working with specific theories from the "South" such as Buen Vivir/Sumak Kawsay and Ubuntu/African humanism in order to broaden the discourse on common goods more generally, without falling into stereotypes. The discussion will call for a greater recognition of our own existing forms of sharing resources and relationships with our environments, to better understand them, but also to better value them collectively through art.
