Socially engaged practice describes art that is collaborative, often participatory and involves people as the medium or material of the work. Related terms include New Genre Public Art, Community Art and Activist Art. Whatever term we want to use, many independent artists now use socially engaged practice as a dynamic and contemporary form of practice within their own art making, while simultaneously, there is a growing interest from local citizens and communities, to affect social change through art and/or to have an input into art that resides within their public realm.
We invite you to join with us and our artist panel, George Higgs (music), Marilyn Lennon (visual arts) and Ríonach Ní Néill (dance) to hear about their experiences and inspirations for making art that is socially engaged. The discussion will be chaired by Annette Moloney, Independent Curator and Public Art Advisor to the Arts Council.
