Scott Townsend Artist Talk - Social Capital: research, education and designing in southern Europe under austerity

Scott Townsend’s projects have taken place recently in Florence Italy, Belgrade Serbia, and in several locations in Greece. Social Capital: Greece is an exhibition developed from research in the community of Kefalonia in western Greece. Southern Europe has a history of migration, regional conflict, and economic austerity. While communities suffer hardship, they also are resilient, finding ways to solve ongoing social and economic issues. The work in this exhibition is both exploratory, based on interviews and interactions in the community (lower gallery), and responsive (upper gallery), where local, regional and international interests intersect in Kefalonia in designing solutions based on the knowledge and resources found in the community on an ongoing basis.
