Youth Week Event: Socially engaged arts practice (16-25 years)



WHEN: 1-4pm – 14 Apr 2018

COST: FREE (RSVP Essential)

TICKETS: Eventbrite

The City’s library youth curators and Pine Street Creative Arts Centre present a panel of some of Sydney’s most innovative cross-disciplinary artists. Each panellist will deconstruct their practice, share examples of their work, and open up a Q&A with the audience.

By working closely and inclusively with relevant segments of the community, socially engaged art practitioners investigate current issues and affect social and political change.

Come and meet other young creatives and discover what socially engaged art practice means and looks like. Find out how you can collaborate to create a successful art project and get inspired to bring your own ideas and projects to life.

Hosted by creative instigator and writer, Natalie Wadwell, this is a one-of-a-kind event.

Stick around after the panel for some food and socially engaged activations.
