Join us on Wednesday 20 September in a discussion around the joys and pitfalls of public art commissioning for neighbourhoods. Arts programmes for communities are often initiated through funding streams with limited timeframes and narrow definitions. In this context, how do curators respond to local needs and embed artist commissions into an area whilst allowing the flexibility to respond to the unexpected opportunities that arise? The talk will be led by Theresa Bergne and Jo Plimmer from Future Perfect and Kim Wide, Director of Take A Part, a socially engaged arts project for Plymouth communities. Free at Bristol’s Architecture Centre from 6pm.More news
