Collaborative Conversations: Socially Engaged Art Practices in Liverpool

Participate in the discussion about collaborative socially engaged art

This symposium offered an opportunity for Liverpool based artists, communities and institutions to present, debate and share expertise in the field of collaborative socially engaged practice.

Key questions included: What are the specific local contexts in Liverpool that create the conditions for these projects? How have local communities responded to collaborative projects in recent years? What are the specific methods of artistic engagement in this region? How do we critically reflect and learn from these practices moving forward?

Day 1: Australian sound artist Vic McEwan presented his work at the Cad Factory in Sandigo, NSW, Australia and as artist in residence on his commission The Harmonic Oscillator, with Alder Hey Children’s Hospital.

Day 2: A number of invited artists and organisations from Liverpool shared their critical reflections of the collaborative social contexts they work in.

Jake Ryan filmed the event to disseminate amongst the CAPP network and as part of the CAPP On Air webinar series.

This event was for artists, local groups, art workers and those interested in discussing the nature of collaborative socially engaged arts. Organised in collaboration with Liverpool John Moores University and delivered in part with the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) – a Creative Europe funded programme.
