Live in Public: The Art of Engagement

October 10 – 13, 2007

About the Program

The Live In Public: The Art of Engagement conference presented by grunt gallery in partnership with the Roundhouse Community Arts and Recreation Centre was an inventory of practice and definitions of those practices as they related to socially engaged art. Exploring the roles, risks, breakthroughs, and expectations of the work of artists in communities through four panels over four days with four artists per panel and over 150 participating artists engaged in conversation and critique, the conference sought to bring artist practitioners together to carve out divergent meanings from our diverse work. A Live In Public: The Art of Engagement website was a continuation of those conversations begun at the conference.
