THE TRANSLOCAL CONDITION - The Power of Local Festival

                                         'Koongarra', theweathergroup_U in collaboration with Jeffrey Lee (AUS)
                                                                 Split screen, single-channel video, 2010

The Translocal Condition, a screening programme of international artist films using The Translocal Condition as the organising principle.

Mahatama Ghandi said "Be the change you want to see in the world". 

The Translocal Condition takes the idea that the local is the exact point at which people can act in the interests of change. Each of the eight participating artists or artist collectives, drawn from around the world, show a film work that engages with specific local conditions. By focusing on action and possibility, these works place the capacity and the responsibility for change in the hands of ordinary people, wherever they find themselves. Every place is a local place; by acting trans-locally we build networks of change. 

The Translocal Condition is made up of works by; Kultivator (SW), Herbologies/Foraging Networks (FI/LAT), Nina Nordstrom (FI), Gareth Kennedy (IRL), Wapke Feenstra (NL), Jennie Guy & Claire Behan (IRL), Ahmed Nabil (EGY), theweathergroup_U (AUS). 

The Translocal Condition is a collection of minds project, curated by Fiona Woods.
