Later this month we’ll be speaking as part of Social Intentions Symposium, which will take a look at the use of social engagement within art institutions. Hosted by the Centre for Contemporary Arts in Glasgow between April 13 and 15.

CCA have invited influential institutions from all over Europe to come together and share different practices, believing that these various socially engaged approaches are relevant in the current development of contemporary culture. The aim is to look at the benefits as well as the pitfalls of the use of social engagement when related to art institutions. The symposium will include workshops and brainstorming sessions as well panel discussions, talks and presentations.

With Sanne Oorthuizen and Ying Que (CASCO), Viviana Checchia (CCA), Ainslie Roddick (CCA), Claudia Zeiske (Deveron Arts Centre), Emily Gee (FACT), Adam Sutherland (Grizedale), Andrea Phillips (Valand Academy, University of Gothenburg), Polly Brannan (Liverpool Biennial), Manuela Villa (Matadero), Marcos Garcia (Medialab – Prado), Alistair Hudson (Mima), Louise Shelley (Showroom), Claire Doherty (Situations), Harry Weeks (University of Edinburgh) and Lucy Brown (University of Strathclyde).
