Online talk: Case Studies in Community Engagement in Public Art with Jo Breckon, Co- Director, Studio Response, Cardiff, Wales. Thursday 10th June, 11am – 12.15pm. Hosted by Mayo Arts Service, Mayo County Council.

Jo will present a review of different approaches to community engagement across a range of Studio Response commissions. In doing so she will explore what is meant by community engagement, what it sets out to achieve and why a requirement for community engagement as part of a public art brief shouldn’t put artists off applying. There will be time for Q&A and discussion after the talk.

Studio Response

At Studio Response we believe that artists can enrich the quality of our public spaces and we work with artists to respond creatively to the people, place, culture, heritage and aspirations of neighbourhoods, towns and cities across the UK, and internationally. We invite artists, designers and architects to make new works with the public at the centre of how their ideas unfold, whether resulting in permanent sculptures or temporary artworks, socially-engaged projects or integrated architectural designs.
