Cork Community Art Link and Community Arts Partnership, in association with Blue Drum and The School of Applied Social Studies UCC have developed an all-island initiative to explore, through a range of discussions and deliberations, the power of community arts to promote, advocate for and ultimately deliver positive change. They intend this conference to provide networking, inspiration and peer support for all community organisations who run arts programmes or wish to do so, and for everyone interested in the possibilities of the arts in community and social contexts.
Following on from Community Arts Partnership’s “What Next” conference in May 2018, SEA CHANGE heralds a new collaboration to promote understanding, deepen practice and find greater ways to include diverse communities and promote social wellbeing. An all island dialogue, bringing together in conference practitioners, researchers, advocates and activists to share, explore and co-author a blueprint for socially engaged arts practice to promote positive change.
