Engage International Conference 2012
Co-Directors Aileen Burns and Johan Lundh are speaking at the Engage International Conference 2012 in Cardiff. Engage is UK’s national association for gallery education.
On their website, Engage writes that “Wales’ arts scene is flourishing, with initiatives challenging assumptions and building relationships nationally and internationally. Across the UK, policy requires a fresh view of how grassroots activity creates a dynamic relationship between the international and the local. In the wider international scene, practice is taking on participation and engagement in a host of locally specific ways. The conference takes place against the backdrop of the 5th Artes Mundi Prize and exhibition. There is also a season of significant visual arts projects in Cardiff in which international work features in projects that grow from grassroots organisations.”
