OVADA Art Talks – Sonia Boue
16 June 2020 at 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BST
We are excited to announce the Artist Sonia Boue as a guest in our online OVADA Art Talk series.
As part of our ongoing series of informal weekday morning talks, we invite professionals working in the creative industries to talk about their projects and contemporary practices. The series provides insights into specific cross-disciplinary areas of the arts and culture sector. The talks are held online via ‘ZOOM‘ – a widely used video communication platform.
Sonia Boué will be in conversation with the arts journalist Romina Provenzi, to discuss her multiform work which explores home and the domestic as metaphors for exile and displacement. Sonia has a significant body of postmemory work. She is also a writer on autism and art, and a leading consultant for neurodiversity in the arts.

She has performed in the UK, Ireland, and Spain. Sonia also creates and leads Arts Council England funded projects which pioneer inclusive models of practice.
