The Parliament of Practices is an interdisciplinary platform for artists, practitioners and scholars interested in the dialogue in-between practices. Central to the Parliament is the dialogue,  exchanging knowledge, experiences and thoughts. This exchange takes place as an investigation and creation of dialogue forms which allow for both recursive and embodied expression. We practice alternative modes of being, becoming with and thinking together across borders of disciplines and generations. The Parliament gives individuals a way to connect outside of production pressure, with time for research, nourishment, making professional friendships and striking up collaborations. But also, in these times of halted production, it offers a way to connect and exchange with peers. 

The Parliament of Practices is supported by the Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium, home of Odin Teatret, in Denmark. For more information, please visit www.crosspollination.space/the-parliament-of-practices.
