Engaging, creating: Artist and maker practitioner residencies in public spaces
6, 7, 8 April 2011
Sackler Centre for Arts Education, V&A
This forthcoming conference will explore the notion of ‘the residency’ (as a long-term engagement beyond the workshop model) for artists to explore and expand practice, within the context of the current trend for a wide variety of public learning organisations to invite artists to participate in residencies as part of their public programme of engagement with the arts.
Does the presence of contemporary practitioners working in these learning environments help to make them more dynamic, creative places for visitors? Does interaction with a resident artist, designer or maker inspire visitors to engage in creative activity and practice themselves? In what ways do host environments benefit from having artists, designers and makers in residence? How can participating in an artists’ residency, that includes engagement with visitors, enable residents to enhance their own skills and practice?
