Shared Evening Meal

Foodhall invite delegates to a shared evening meal in their city centre space.Foodhall is an open public kitchen and dining room in the heart of Sheffield. Managed by the community for the community, it tackles social isolation and encourages integration across a diverse range of community groups. Foodhall cooks with surplus food from local traders, which would have otherwise gone to waste. Meals are served all on a contribute-what-you-can basis.

The space will be open from 7.30. A bar will be open and dinner will be served at 8.15 p.m. There will be a brief presentation after dinner about The National Food Service, an idea, which began at Foodhall, to promote social eating spaces in order that we may scale the movement and enable more people to benefit from it. The NFS is being built collaboratively and cooperatively by many different organisations and thinkers.

Music from DJ Katsugi will follow at 9.30p.m until close.

Places are limited. Please book via Eventbrite. Suggested donation £5.

Discuss and Exchange: 'Staying Social and Its Consequences' -

Early on in its eighteen year history, Access Space developed a strategy for engaging with the community in Sheffield (and encouraging the community to engage with itself) using intertwined strands of art, technology and education. At the heart of this was a sense of the social which created new communities that still exist in the world today. People met here, taught each other creative skills and became friends, and they still do.

Jake Harries will present an overview of Access Space’s history while discussing the position it finds itself in today

Access Space has used a social environment to pioneer a peer learning space for the broader community and to push its agenda of the arts, technology and social change.

Over the eighteen years technology has changed and so have the economic and political environments, and each of these have had their effects, but still the most important aspect of this organisation is as a place where people can interact with each other, break down barriers and learn from each other.

The archive contains many kinds of objects that are created as part of social movements by the participants themselves: posters, flyers, publications, photographs, books, T-shirts and badges, moving images, audio recordings, and other materials.

Through their programming, IA use this cultural ephemera to animate histories of people mobilising for social transformation, considering the use of their collection to be a way of preserving and honoring histories and material culture that is often marginalised in mainstream institutions.

As an all-volunteer organisation, the local community are welcome and encouraged to shape the collection and programming; creating a space where all volunteers can learn from each other and develop new skills. The archive works in collaboration with like-minded projects, encouraging critical as well as creative engagement with contemporary histories and current struggles.

Open Call: 'Group Therapy for Social Practice Artists' - Davina Drummond

Group Therapy for Social Practice Artists (it’s cheaper than individual therapy!)

Do you ever question how social art practice is valued in the wider art world? Do you ever feel your practice is considered second rate to exhibition artists? Do you ever wonder or get asked whether what you do is actually even art? Do you make ‘social practice art’ as a way to support your ‘own’ practice? Do you feel emotionally exhausted from the psychologically taxing nature of your work?

If you answered YES to any of these questions then this session is for you! Come and spend an hour with Davina using 'art therapy' techniques to reflect on these questions and explore how we as artists can support ourselves and each other whilst strengthening the role of art and social practice in the UK and beyond.

Lab: 'Social Art Practice in Higher Education' - Loraine Leeson & Roxane Permar

This lab will explore the position of social art practice in higher education from a range of social and cultural perspectives. Artists from four institutions, including the universities of Highlands & Islands, Middlesex and Goldsmiths and Limerick School of Art and Design, will share experiences of implementing postgraduate programmes in their institutions. 

Through both contentious and practical questioning conversations will address:

How do we get it into the institutions? Can the subject survive within the curriculum without compromise to principles and values? Once inside, how do we keep it there?  Do we want social art practice embedded in the institutions? What benefit will the field gain from inclusion in higher education? How can social art practice benefit the institution? And what can the institution give practitioners?

Open Call: 'Organisational Diagrams for Everyday Lives of Socially Engaged Artists' - Helen Stratford

What do you do everyday? How do you organise your daily life? Is it productive?

Recently, while working with communities whose existence has been deemed without ‘economic justification,’ Helen has been exploring what makes a ‘productive’ life.

Equipped with a library of architectural / diagrammatic books alongside self-help guides, such as ‘DOING IT NOW!’ and ‘GETTING IT DONE!,’ light boxes, drawing tables, and flow chart templates, Helen is inviting delegates to join her in making diagrams of day-to-day challenges and routines.

Playing with pie charts, flow charts, colour charts, bar charts and other organisational devices, this session will bring everyday, yet personally unique routines together with the measured ways that try to organise our daily existence; critiquing those organising devices that promise to "change you to who you really want to be."

The Temporary Tattoo Parlour

Commissioned by GOSH Arts, artist Davina Drummond collaborated with young people at Great Ormond Street Hospital (GOSH) and tattoo artist Ella Bell to create a limited edition set of temporary tattoos as a reminder that not all experiences or situations, especially when in hospital are permanent.

Historically tattoos have served as decorations of bravery, pledges of love and hope, celebrations of achievements and as reminders of important events. The discussions and limited edition that came out of a series of workshops allowed young people to reflect on the techniques they use to cope with their illness; process their hospital experience and share the challenges of living with ongoing health conditions.

Through a collaboration with Artfelt, the Temporary Tattoo Parlour will be situated at Sheffield Children’s Hospital on Friday 2nd 2.00 - 5.00.

Discuss & Exchange: 'Queering Spaces'

Led by Claire Meade, Jessie Mclaughlin and Kevin Jesuino

Queering Spaces will examine the challenges, visibility and specific needs for queer artists working in socially engaged practice. This D & E event will bring together voices that explore how queerness can be brought towards visibility in education, museums, and the social sphere. Examples of practices across various countries and cultural contexts will shed light on how queer artists are bringing the struggle of representation into the forefront of social art practice both in the UK and abroad.

Claire Mead is an art historian and independent curator whose current research has focused on experimental film within the art museum, and has extended to consider feminist and queer film and visual arts practices and the way they are curated in the museum, exploring issues surrounding diversity and tokenism in the field. She also works as a consultant for emerging artists in Paris, while continuing to write as an art critic on her blog, “Art is a Conversation”.

Jessie McLaughlin is self-proclaimed amateur artist and footballer working from a queer, brown (sometimes sad) perspective, foregrounding emotional experiences and proposing these as valid methods of research. Currently they are doing an ARHC funded partnership PhD between Goldsmiths, University of London and Tate researching how to queer and decolonise the space of the art museum through working with young people.

Kevin Jesuino is a Portuguese-Canadian interdisciplinary artist. His works spans the performing arts, visual art and participatory social art practices. His interests lie in socially engaged/relational art practices that intersect between the visual and performance art forms while bringing to the forefront the voices of the marginalized (both artist and non-artist) and speak of contemporary world issues.
