Bbeyond in conjunction with artists worldwide presents a Day of Public Actions for Freedom and Democracy

22 – 23 September 2017

This project developed from the Bbeyond symposium, Being in Public, Encounters, Outside Space and Inner Space, April 2017 and was proposed by Chumpon Apisuk who stated that:

“It is the day that all states must recognise and allow actions from the people which are ‘peaceful’ and ‘non-violent’. This day of action can be with or without context, but for the recognition of all people’s rights to share the public space together, in solidarity with each other, in respect of each others rights to share the same public space, as well as the time.”

On 22-23 Sept groups from the various international locations will mark this day by making performances in public spaces. Day of Public Action for Freedom and Democracy, is a celebration of the generosity of spirit that artists can bring to life, working in group actions that mark time and connectivity through Performance Art.

An important aspect is that this project can only be realised with the very generous input from all the artists concerned, from diverse geographical positions globally.
