Socially Engaged Practice
Now and Next

7th and 8th June 2018

Delivered by Take a Part CIC thanks to support from Plymouth Culture and Arts Council England.

Held at Devonport Guildhall, home of Real Ideas Organisation, the Arts Council England Bridge organisation for the South West.

Social Making: Socially Engaged Practice Now and Next is a biennial symposium developed and delivered by Take A Part CIC.

The aim of the symposium is to bring examples of international socially engaged practices to the South West of the UK, giving the region exposure to a wider network of projects and organisations, and an opportunity to consider a range of methods and their impact. This provides support and learning for artists, curators, arts organisations, councillors, commissioners, producers, students and academics, ensuring that the region continues to produce and support high-quality, risk-taking and ambitious public arts programmes.

It is also about sharing socially engaged practices in Plymouth and the city’s ambitions outwards, as innovators and risk-takers and as a centre from which projects are tested and grown.
