Engaging Publics/Public Engagement symposium - Auckland Art Gallery

Engaging Publics/Public Engagement symposium - Auckland Art Gallery | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it
Overview

A day of discussions about the changing connections between art and its publics: Co-organised by Auckland Art Gallery and AUT University School of Art and Design

International keynote speaker: Jeanne van Heeswijk

How can the public play a greater role in art? How can public participants be generative in the creation of culture - in reality as well as in theory? How can a multitude of voices be heard or seen in 'public art' and in art institutions? Can art in public space support new or productive relationships with communities? Is it possible for art institutions to engage with expectations that art will assist in the development of a discursive public sphere while also having to prioritise cultural tourism or the economic contribution of the arts?

This symposium seeks discussion on the rise of connectivities between art in public space and publics. It addresses varied calls for art to play a role in the creation of a public sphere, evident, for example, in the recent Istanbul and Sydney biennales.

Saturday 13 September - 9am-5pm

About the school | Utopia School

We're co-developing a new learning project called Utopia School, with people who want to share information about both failed and successful Utopian projects and work towards new ones. For us, utopias are those spaces and initiatives that reimagine the world in some crucial way. The school will engage and connect local experts in urgent conversations while building something tangible together. The goal of these connections is to help accumulate collective knowledge from one locale to another throughout the duration of this multi-city project, into a comprehensive database and open curricula on utopian thought and practice. This will include physical places and relationship dynamics involved, as well as systems of organizing, political context, common roadblocks, and the methods used to create and sustain these projects.

Arts + Prison: Transforming Lives Behind Bars through the Arts | NEA

Arts + Prison: Transforming Lives Behind Bars through the Arts | NEA | Social Art Practices | Scoop.it

The California Arts Council received quite the Valentine's Day surprise from one of its fellow state agencies last February. The head of rehabilitation programs for the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) called with a proposal: help coordinate an 18-month, $2.5 million Arts-in-Corrections pilot program in California state prisons. CDCR would provide the funding, and the Arts Council would provide the know-how and coordination. Like most Valentine’s Day proposals, CDCR’s was happily accepted.   By June the first phase of the program was launched. The Arts Council contracted seven arts organizations with dozens of artists scheduled to provide more than 10,000 hours of arts programming in 14 state prisons in the first year, and even more planned for the following year.   The current Arts-in-Corrections pilot isn't exactly new, but rather is a revival of a previously successful program. Arts programs in California prisons started in the late 1970s, and became world-renowned through the 1980s and early 1990s. But due to various budgetary and policy decisions, the program dwindled to next to nothing during the first decade of the 21st century and was officially closed by CDCR in 2010. - See more at: http://arts.gov/art-works/2014/arts-prison-transforming-lives-behind-bars-through-arts#sthash.xil90PMz.dpuf

Floating Studio for Dark Ecologies

Floating Studio for Dark Ecologies (FSDE) is an art/science residency program and public artwork focused on the present and future health of the Willamette/Columbia Rivers in North Portland, Oregon. FSDE plans to establish a laboratory sited on a houseboat or barge in the rivers; the lead-up work consists of experimental field trips, workshops, and the production of a site-specific field guide. These are working, experimental models; they could exist on any river, in any community/ecosystem, and are responsive to the environmental/social complexities specific to a given locale. FSDE synthesizes social practice, craft, and citizen science in the form of novel, creative engagements with public participants. These aim to address the confluence of social, biological and economic systems, connecting climate change and river health.

(SPAN) member Jacqueline Bell interviewed Cayetano Juarez and Christina Sanchez Juarez as a part of the 2014 (SPAN) Listening Tour.

Cayetano Juarez and Christina Sanchez Juarez are a politically engaged duo working in the public sphere on projects that fuse art, food, and community. Since 2011 they have been actively invested in advocating for restaurant workers rights through a series of projects that focus on archiving and disseminating the histories of immigrant kitchen workers. These projects manifest themselves as participatory performances, installations, dining experiences, and cooking demonstrations/classes. In 2014 the duo began forming the Cocina Abierta Collective, a nomadic experimental “test kitchen” that facilitates the fluid exchange of immigrant histories, culinary skills, and base building strategies towards the development of a worker-centered philosophy to eating ethically.
