Community Art and the Social Production of Space

October 29, 2020 @ 3:15 pm - 4:15 pm

Community Art and the Social Production of Space

Stephen Pritchard will talk about how community art is about the social and cultural production of spaces. Using examples from his practice and research, he’ll argue against socially engaged art, outreach and placemaking, and for community art as part of grassroots community development, participatory democracies and place guarding.

Underpinned by the principles of radical cultural democracy and community art as acts of not knowing and the creation of potential spaces in which radical, collective change can happen, Stephen will call for a reconsideration of how the state and many others perceive, value and support community art, particularly during and in the short-, medium- and long-term aftermath of COVID-19.
