Create and Voluntary Arts Ireland are hosting a symposium to discuss the current and future relationship of arts and civil society.
The symposium is a great opportunity to participate in a discussion with a national and an international cohort of artists, thinkers, community activists and civil society leaders.
Over the two days, speakers will address how and if art in the context of civil society fits with a market led art/cultural tourism model - and whether it should - and how arts and culture can be reaffirmed at the heart of civic engagement.
Create and Voluntary Arts Ireland have confirmed the participation of Dr Anthony Downey as keynote speaker and speakers from Italy, Ireland, England, Greece and Portugal who will take part in the Carnegie Challenge Debate – Arts and Civil Society in Crisis.
Artists, arts officers, arts organisations, voluntary and civil society organisations and policy makers with an interest in arts, culture and social change.
