Shades of Agency seminar - June 15


Collaborative, socially engaged arts redistribute the agency of art-making among artists, participants and institutional contexts. In this event we will address the complex negotiations involved in the production and presentation of collaborative projects.

The event format is a 'cafe discussion' with short provocations from invited speakers and screenings. Join the event and share your experience with our 40 international guests from the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme!
