Social Making 2016

Our team have been busy developing an exciting two day event which will take place on the 28th and 29th April 2016 at Radiant Space, Plymouth. Entitled “Social Making: Socially Engaged Practice Now and Next”, this symposium investigates two key aspects of socially engaged art: different methods of approaching socially engaged work and its impact on audience and communities.

We have a fantastic line up of speakers including the Turner Prize 2015 winners Assemble, Mammalian Diving Reflex’s Darren O’Donnell and HomeBaked’s (Two Up/Two Down) Britt Jurgensen. Research papers will be presented by Dr Rory Shand (Manchester Metropolitan University) and Peter Harris (Wolf + Water) to showcase the innovative and inclusive methods of Plymouth-based organisations Take A Part CIC and Effervescent Social Alchemy.

Take A Part is a Plymouth based arts organisation working closely with communities using art to respond to and solve local issues and needs. We are socially engaged community arts specialists making exciting projects happen here in Plymouth. Our collaborative projects are risk-taking, provoking and engaging. Take A Part started from within the Efford community in Plymouth by a process of community empowerment that developed our unique and studied co-commissioning and co-curating work.
