Social Making aims to bring together artists, curators, community members, commissioners, policy makers, audiences, researchers and anyone with an interest in social practice in the arts. For Take A Part, social practice is collaborative and puts people at the heart of the artwork, and it is this spirit that we bring to our symposium. Each iteration of the symposium has been different but we always strive to move to a more active engagement with our delegates rather than the traditional conference experience. This year, we are excited to provide three workshop opportunities, led by brilliant South-West based artists and organisations, while presentations by international practitioners will explore community action and activism to face current geo-political crises. We are also happy to be working with Far Flung Dance Theatre to host a creative chill out space, and to provide creative enablers for participants who have additional access needs.

We are delighted to host presentations by Ways of Working, In Place of War, and Cooking Sections. Workshops will be led by Rachel Dobbs, Far Flung Dance Theatre, and Elinor Lower from the Rising Arts Agency Community. There will be a social mixer event on the Thursday evening.
