On 1st November Loraine Leeson will lead a panel considering the legacy and continuation of community art practices at a daylong conference convened by Liverpool Biennial and Andrea Phillips in association with Visible Award 2015 and Tate Liverpool. It is part of a weekend of programmes that considers current approaches in socially engaged art.

The event brings together distinguished thinkers and practitioners from the field of community arts, in order to discuss the legacy of such practices in the light of a renewed interest in socially engaged art. This event will re-open conversations and instigate new ones, ensuring that important work undertaken in the 1970s and 1980s continues to resonate.
