Social Art Summit Thursday 1st & Friday 2nd November 2018
Over two-days artists from around the country came together to share practice, showcase work and explore what it means to be making art through social engagement right now.
Artists, activists, community groups, curators, students, academics, funders and sectors working in the social realm were invited to join the conversation through a series of events at Site Gallery and other venues around the city. Through building a network, showcasing practice and expanding dialogue the Summit will develop agency in the field of art and social practice and test the ground for launching a Social Art Biennale
Social Art Publications is dedicated to developing a portfolio of publications to cultivate, expand and promote knowledge in and about social practice.
Building from the vision of the Social Art Network (SAN), SAP will develop expanded critical and reflective dialogue around the work of socially engaged practice, be a platform to showcase new work, strengthen peer support for artist book distribution, and be a database of current and historic publications.
At the recent two-day Social Making symposium in Plymouth, socially engaged practice was discussed in relation to Arnstein's Ladder, a theory of citizen participation devised in the 1960s. Carolyn Black explores its relevance.
