Social Making: Socially Engaged Practice Now and Next is a symposium which will 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 will, in turn, provide support and learning for artists, 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 the 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.
The symposium is developed and delivered by Take a Part CIC in partnership with Plymouth University's Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
Speakers include: Assemble; Dr Sarah Bennett, Plymouth University; Darren O’Donnell, Artistic and Research Director, Mammalian Diving Reflex; Professor Lynn Froggett, University of Central Lancashire; Peter Harris, Wolf + Water; Dominic Jinks, Executive Director, Plymouth Culture; Britt Jurgensen, Producer, HomeBaked; Eloise Malone, CEO, Effervescent Social Alchemy; Dr Kelechi Nnoaham, Director of Public Health, Plymouth City Council; Professor Alan Schechner, Plymouth University; Dr Rory Shand, Manchester Metropolitan University; Kim Wide, Director of Take a Part; Claire Doherty, founder Director of Situations.
