Create and Voluntary Arts Ireland

 

Arts and Civil Society Symposium

Date: 20 and 21 October 2011
Venue: Christchurch, Triskel Arts Centre, Cork City

Create and Voluntary Arts Ireland are hosting a symposium to discuss the current and future relationship of arts and civil society.

  • How might we rethink the relationship of arts and civil society in a time of crisis?
  • What might constitute new modes of cultural resistance?
  • How is art embedded in the everyday? 

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.
