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

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

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.
