25 and 26 October
Perceptions 2016: The Art of Citizenship would like to invite you to join us to explore and consider creative citizenship, equality of access and participation within our cultural spaces.
Taking place over two days, the symposium is open to the public and practitioners from cultural, social and education fields.
There are a number of attendance options:
Day one offers free tours and a creative fair providing opportunities to engage with artists, art studios and other symposium delegates. This will also provide a context for engagement with the presentations on day two.
