Drinks Reception: 'Social Works? Open' - AxisWeb Publication Launch

  • Site Gallery (Project Space) 1 Brown Street Sheffield S1 2BS (map)

We’re pleased to be hosting the launch of this exciting and much needed publication of new writing about social art practice.

Social Works?: Open was developed as a response to research conducted by the Models of Validation project, and is part of a larger programme of workshops, get-togethers and events supporting socially engaged artistic practice. The publication features 14 new commissioned pieces of writing and 2 artist commissions.

We will be joined by artist Loraine Leeson who will be reading an excerpt of her recent book Art:Process:Change - inside a socially situated practice, published by Routledge in 2017. 

There will also be a digital version of the journal developed for publication on the Axisweb site in Winter 2018. To find out more about the Social Works?: Open and the Social Works? Programme please visit: or email

Come along for a drink and to hear a few readings from the publication.
