Complex Public Service is a socially-engaged project by artist Katie Ceekay in collaboration with WTTV Festival and Kunstinitiatief VHDG. Katie invites participation in this long-term project, which involves participant-focused activities (from cooking, to learning new skills, to anything else you can imagine), an active conversation about our futures and a chance to practice a more empathetic world together.
To truly apply a real, effective service, Complex Public Service engages city public, festival go-ers and policy makers to work in a unique way that questions the use of resources, time and values. The project will meet at WTTV Festival through Empathy Village, a participatory platform, and will continue weekly with its participants to keep practicing self-worth and real community-change in tandem.
Keep an eye out for the open call to join the project!
Places are now available for participation in this year’s WTTV x VHDG x artist Katie Ceekay collaboration. Complex Public Service is a socially-engaged long-term project offering weekly, individualised programmes in a variety of unique ways.
For our festival community, we have a couple of spots open for families and households. How does it work? This project is like a surprise, it’s based on humans seeing each other and making new connections, it’s based on both desires and needs. Together with and facilitated by Katie you map out a holistic programme that fits you, asking yourself how you can make use of an artist as a public servant. From casual coffees, one to one workshops, or outdoor activities, to finding a moment to be yourself, Complex Public Service invites you for a breath of fresh air. The project is open to all ages and backgrounds, and experience with the arts is not necessary in any way. Participants can come together at the festival to be a part of an on-site Empathy Village.
