Artists Making Places Conference

10 November 9.30-4.30

Greenwich, London

The Art on Greenwich Peninsula programme explores the opportunities around commissioning art and working with artists in relation to this twenty year regeneration scheme.

The conference takes 'place making' and the role of the artist as its theme. It will address the social issues around place making, moving beyond the notion of physical or geographic place; looking at building communities and developing community cohesion. It will explore the ways in which artists can be agents in this process and the related practical, ethical and aesthetic considerations and responsibilities. 

Confirmed speakers and contributors include: Alfredo Jaar (artist), Declan McGonagle (National College of Art and Design Dublin), Laurie Peake (Liverpool Biennial), Bob and Roberta Smith (artist), Anna Hart (Archway Investigations and Responses, Byam Shaw), Faisal Abdu'Allah (artist), Nick Ewbank (The Creative Foundation), Vivienne Reiss and Bridget Sawyers (Art on Greenwich Peninsula). There will also be contributions from a number of artists involved in the Art on Greenwich Peninsula programme including Howard Matthew, Julian Walker, Aoife Mannix, and Sarah Butler.
