Lab: 'New Ways of Seeing, Telling and Making: Addressing Barriers to Participation for BAME Communities' - Elsa James

Taking the 'Creative Case for Diversity' report as 'a provocation' this lab will ask a series of profound questions about how we can genuinely address barriers to participation and involvement in the arts for black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

Delegates will be invited to participate anonymously in a voting booth to answer a set of pre-written questions on postcards that will form the basis of a conversation with Elsa James, guest artist Priya Mistry and Dawn Walton, Founder/Artistic Director of Eclipse Theatre Company.

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

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?

Lab: 'Who Imagines the City?' - Rebecca Beinart

With a focus on spaces for collective imagination this lab will take a critical and creative approach to questioning who imagines the city? With examples of projects that create space for imagining, commoning and organising together, the lab will explore questions of power, inclusivity and care in the city, as well different ways creative practices can play out – from resistance and healing to complicity and displacement.

In small groups delegates will be invited to share practice and respond to provocations with the intention of sharing strategies, questions and ideas that can spill into other sessions during the Summit.

Rebecca Beinart is an artist and Engagement Curator at Primary, Nottingham and will be joined by guest artist Ian Nesbitt [The Commoners Fair] and Hasan from Voices that Shake.

Lab: 'What's Your Problem? Social Art: Diversity, Inclusion and Galleries' - Harold Offeh

Director of Site Gallery, Sharna Jackson and other guests will join Harold Offeh in exploring social arts agendas of diversity, inclusion and access for artists and audiences to gallery spaces.
