The Politics of Context

Workshop with Fiona Woods, artist and educator 

Presented by Create and The Dock

Date: Thursday 2nd March 2017

Time: 10 – 1pm

Venue: The Dock, Leitrim

This workshop will explore some of the navigational tools that socially engaged artists can use to critically assess their position in relation to a field of practice which involves various and, sometimes, conflicting interests. The workshop will include a range of theoretical considerations and practical explorations, supporting participants in an analysis and peer critique of their own modes of practice. Relating the practice to the politics of institutions will also be considered. 

This workshop is aimed at both emerging and established artists working in collaborative and socially engaged arts. 

Places are limited to 15, so please book early to secure a place, by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with Politics of Context in the subject line.
