As public participation in the arts evolves, contemporary practices are emerging that challenge how art takes its place within the cultural framework of our society. So how do contemporary artists invite local people into innovative spaces of collaborative making and experimentation that speak to the realities of where we live? OSCA Artistic Director Paul Gazzola has invited the South Australian artists, Laura Wills, Emma Beech and Henry J Walker to talk about their innovative practices that explore the interplay between a site, local stories, found materials and historical relationships.
This event will provide an opportunity to hear and discuss how new models of civic and socially based art engagement can foster valuable spaces of enduring community engagement.
Sunday 1st October, 2017. 3 – 4pm, Victoria Square/ Tarntanyangga
