Whose Art? Our Art! Access and Activism in Gallery Education

Taking place during Liverpool Biennial 2016, this year’s engage Conference programme will have a strong focus on arts activism – how it has changed not only society’s response to art, but also how it has irrevocably altered the way in which the arts world now engages with society at large.

The conference will consider the exciting methods of engagement which have developed from the early days of activism, examples of how intervention achieves its aims and the ways in which the arts can create value in contemporary society. It will examine how the arts can effectively engage with schools and ask if the curricula, or styles of interaction need to change. A discussion about how best to provide sustainable careers for artists will bring the two days of interaction and conversation to a close.

Speakers include Rabab Ghazoul, Bryan Biggs, Mike Fairclough, Kenn Taylor, Rebecca Ross-Williams, Steffan Jones-Hughes, Oriel Wrecsam and Nina Edge.
