Culture + Community: Visioning Social Practice
Friday, November 30, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM (PST)
Vancouver, British Columbia
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 is ideal for artists, arts and community organizations, community leaders, educators, funders, businesses and other interested individuals. The day will consist of:
- 10 x 10 presentations (10 slides/10 minutes) of 12 community cultural engagement projects
- Break-out sessions to explore the practice and questions
- Larger group discussion
- Establishing connections and sharing resources
Registration is FREE but there will be a charge of $10 for ‘no shows’. Light morning refreshments will be provided and you are free to explore Granville Island for your lunch.
