FREMANTLE ARTS CENTRE THIS WEEK – THE CLIPPERTON PROJECT.

This week at the Fremantle Arts Centre is an interesting collaboration called the Clipperton Project.

The Clipperton Project (TCP) is an international initiative that uses notions of exploration, journey and discovery to inspire and empower members of the public to interact with diverse perspectives, peoples and disciplines. What started in 2011 as an expedition to Clipperton Island in the Pacific Ocean is now a multidisciplinary arts/science research project focusing on isolated locations.

The Clipperton Project’s Professional Development Workshop, What We Don’t Know Yet takes as a starting point the fact that the world that we inhabit is a limitless place of absolute fascination. They believe and argue that we are all stakeholders in every debate, and that the key attribute to skill-making is not knowledge but willingness to risk and to step over the horizon, into other territories, other spaces, professions and new ways of free thinking – leaving aside ego, prejudice, localism.

What We Don’t Know Yet will feature speakers and participants from various disciplines, discussing and presenting ideas and ways that professionals of all genres can rethink and review their work in a context broader than a given industry might usually allow. Led by The Clipperton Project founder and director Jonathan Bonfiglio.
