Autograph’s Rights in Focus Network meets quarterly to discuss the structural powers shaping the context in which arts engagement work is taking place, and consider how approaches based on the legal, civic, and human rights of participants can inform more ethically aware forms of participatory projects – and help initiate systemic change.
Please join us for an afternoon of talks, discussion, practice sharing and networking. Our guest speaker will be Tony Cealy.

How can the rights of participants be central to the design and delivery of arts engagement?
Why do we work with those most marginalised, excluded or discriminated against?
What ethical dilemmas and power dynamics of arts engagement emerge in these relationships?
Can this work advocate for systemic change at personal, community, organisational and societal levels?
This event is aimed at arts professionals, socially engaged artists, curators, arts commissioners, facilitators creating workshops in arts and community spaces, artist educators, and those working in community settings – regardless of what stage in your career or practice you are at. You’ll be encouraged to share learning, skills and resources from you own practice. We welcome newcomers to the Network.
