About Practice, Place, Purpose, 28th June 2018
Led by stewardship organisations National Trust, Forestry Commission England, Canal & River Trust and Churches Conservation Trust in partnership with Exeter University, Practice, Place Purpose is a one day symposium exploring the purpose and practice of place-based contemporary arts commissioning and its impact. Expect artist led outdoor wanderings, research papers and provocative debate with plenty of opportunity for participation and discussion.
We are looking for two enthusiastic people to join us for the symposium on 28th June to record and document the event.
Each reporter will be given an £150 bursary and a free ticket to the symposium.
We are looking for those who are curious and excited by the symposium themes, and are imaginative and creative in their outlook. We are open to the reporting taking different media forms, whether written, audio or visual recording, and should not be a critical review, but the documentation of the events of the day.
We will be sharing the documentation with the symposium project partners in addition to sharing from Trust New Art’s National Social Media channels, and publishing on the VASW online platform.
Please note this opportunity is open nationally to permanent residents of the UK.
