WHO: Artists, curators and representatives from arts organisations.
WHAT: Self-organised public art practice has always offered a means of challenging the dominant order and continually finds new ways of doing things without the overarching support of an institution, public funding body or private patron. This event will explore different models of self-organisation within contemporary public art practice. It will examine: rationales and tactics for getting started; social, economic and organisational structures; and strategies for survival and sustaining activities.
