Meet-a-Maker is a 30-minute session to have a one-on-one talk with artists currently working at Mediamatic. We are lucky to be inspired by the many artists who work and stay with us for exhibitions, residencies and workshops. We welcome you to meet them and be inspired as well!
About the artist
Sophie Conroy is an artist and embodied researcher. She uses her life as a tool to test different ways of living, creating conditions to explore the unknown and learn more about the world and the self.
From these observed actions, Sophie uses film, writing, textile, and performance to communicate and share stories. She is working towards developing practices and tools that support our reconnection with each other, our environment, and ourselves. Ultimately, Sophie is exploring the question: What is it that we really need?
Sophie speaks English.
Current work at Mediamatic
Sophie: "I am collaborating with Mediamatic and their neighbours living outside to explore the topic of houselessness in the area."
"My work at Mediamatic is not an attempt to "solve" the problem of houselessnes in Amsterdam. There are many brilliant organisations already working to support these individuals. However, through active engagement I am exploring how we can connect and relate with people who are differently housed then us. Exploring the potential to welcome rather than fear our neighbours, and to build a more collaborative supportive culture."
