The Social Art Summit aims to build a network of artists working in the field; increase critical discourse around the practice and test the ground for launching a Social Art Biennale in 2020. Artists, activists, community groups, curators, students, academics, funders and sectors working in the arts and social realm are all welcome to join the conversation through a series of events at Site Gallery and other venues around the city.

We are looking forward to artists from around the country gathering to share practice, showcase work and explore what it means to be making art through social engagement right now.

THE PROGRAMME for the summit includes a series of artist-led labs exploring a wide range of aspects of socially engaged art practice; presentations by international guests; workshops; discussions; a publication launch; free lunch each day; a party on the Thursday night; plenty of opportunities to network and share practice, and a whole host of diverse work presented by artists and practitioners.

REGISTRATION is required to join the Summit. We offer a sliding scale fee starting at £45 for individual artists and practitioners. This fee is made possible by support from Arts Council England. Please read the pricing descriptions to see which ticket is correct for you.
Full programme to be annnounced early October
