FREE seminar providing a platform for connection, exchange of ideas and collaborations, and networking – with visiting speakers and refreshments.

Provocations and conversations addressing socially engaged practice, social action and social impact whilst working in a rural context with time for networking and exploring collaborations for future working.


What do Socially Engaged Practice, Social Action and Social Impact mean for artists and communities?
How can we do things differently in a chaotic world that makes a difference?
How do artists create a sustainable practice with alternatives to being entirely funded?
How do artists keep on truckin’?
And how to do all this in a rural context?

Visiting provocateurs and speakers are engaged in social action both in a local and national context:

Katie Etheridge (Faceback)

Jessica Prendergrast (Contains Art CIC)

Hilary Powell (Bank Job)

Anna Best (Force8)

Sally Lemsford (SEAFAIR)

This Culture+ workshop is specifically for artists and creative practitioners based in Dorset, providing support for the creative industry strand.

Funded by Arts Council England and the European Regional Development Fund.
