Social Works?: Live - Thank You!

Social Works?: Live 2019

Published: 03 May 2019

A huge thanks to everyone who came to Social Works? Live last week at Manchester School of Art! We’re really grateful to everyone who came along and shared their practice as well a their experiences and ideas about social art. There were some really meaningful conversations had, lots of brilliant work showcased and some exciting new connections forged. We hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did!

In case you missed it, Social Works?: Live was a celebration and exploration of socially engaged practice—and brought together 11 commissioned artists, 3 commissioners and a dynamic fringe space of social arts practitioners from across the UK - and internationally.

We are now in the process of reflecting on the event and thinking ahead to the next stages of the Social Works? / ‘Models of Validation’ project – including a potential publication and short video documentary. Watch this space for more info!

Here's a trailer for the main film we're making about the event:
