engage International Conference 2012
Venues across Cardiff
6 & 7 November, fringe events on 5 November
Next week Oliver Sumner and Samar Maakaron will be representing Delta Arts at the engage conference in Cardiff. They will present an insight into Delta Arts’ new book on the Golden Threads series of artist-to-artist research fellowships. Golden Threads explored the social role for artists in Beirut, Copenhagen and London. It set out to challenge artists’ practices by placing the socially local concerns that informed them into different cultural contexts internationally. The resulting book records the collective discourse that took place between the artists, including the local concerns of social / participatory practices and the role of self-organised international networks.
