Welcome to the webinar “Exploring Socially Engaged Practice” with Scotland-based practicing artists Dr. T S Beall and Dr Liz Gardiner (Moderator)
Date: January 12th, 2024
Time: 13:00-14:00 (CET) / 12.00-13.00 (GMT)
As we all grapple with the ‘how to’ impact the narratives and realities of global climate change, this Creative Europe funded webinar explores the potential of interventionist artists employing socially engaged practices to empower local communities and amplify hitherto unheard voices.
With questions like “what exactly is socially engaged practice or social practice ?” “What does art/culture have to offer when science can’t fix climate change?” and “which communities/whose communities are Turning the Tide on climate change?” Drs. Beall and Gardiner are experienced practitioners who will help us interrogate those questions. Please join us and bring your own thoughts/ideas/reservations to enrich the debate!
This webinar will be of interest to practitioners, policymakers, planners, students and anyone interested in finding new, innovative solutions to the problems of climate change.
Located in the framework of a large scale, 5 city cooperation project called Turning the Tide (TTT) and involving members of the River Cities network (www.river//cities.net
) we aim to foster ideas and discussion around artists and socially engaged practices within local communities on waterfronts threatened by climate change.
