CULTURE + COMMUNITY – Visioning Social Practice
Friday, November 30th, 2012
9:00 am – 4:30 pm
Emily Carr University of Art + Design
1399 Johnston Street, Vancouver, BC
This day aims to build an understanding of the current state of community engaged arts practice in Vancouver and to identify strategic directions for continued success into the future. It is presented by partners in community and culture: Emily Carr University of Art + Design (Faculty of Culture + Community and Continuing Studies), the City of Vancouver (Cultural Services and Park Board) and the Community Arts Council of Vancouver.
Community cultural development, social practice, participatory engagement – these are ways we describe artistic and cultural practices that engage citizens around shared ideas and interests with the goal of effecting meaningful change for the people involved.
Culture + Community – Visioning Social Practice is ideal for artists, arts and community organizations, community leaders, educators, funders, businesses and other interested individuals who would like to explore this practice and discuss further:
- What does community support look like for artists working in social practice and what are some models for partnerships and collaborations?
- What are our larger goals of engagement with audiences and public participants?
- What are the practices and the gaps in training and education for those who want to work in community engagement?
- How are organizations, institutions and businesses engaging the arts and what constitutes success and failure?
Registration is FREE but there will be a charge of $10 for ‘no shows’.
