Visiting Arts invites you to join our global network of cultural managers, creative producers and artists in a series of discussions that address equally the bureaucracy inherent in international work as well as the need for cultural sensitivity and dialogue. Real life experiences and first-hand knowledge will be shared by our speakers and through audience discussion. There will be a chance to meet and connect with others who are passionate about seeking, finding and discussing common ground across borders. Stay for networking with a drink after the event in the Arts Bar & Café.
Tickets are £9 (standard) and £6 (artists). Your ticket price includes 1 free drink from the bar.
Art & Politics
What responsibility do artists have to engage with politics in societies around the world, and what motivates them to do so? How might artists influence cultural, political and social values as a visitor to another community? We will hear from artists and creative producers who bring case studies embedded in diverse cultures, with a lively debate about what it means to be a creative citizen in a global society.
