Changing Tracks Public Art Conference

November 19, 2014

CHANGING TRACKS is a contemporary visual and digital art project consisting of new temporary outdoor artworks on walking and cycling routes that used to be railway lines, by three international artists, Aideen Barry (IE) Xevi Bayona (CAT) and Noah Rose (UK). An associated conference will take place on the 19th of November 2014 to review the project and will be hosted by the University of Northampton School of The Arts.

CHANGING TRACKS is a partnership project led by Northamptonshire County Council (UK) with partners Mayo County Council (IE), and Consortium Transversal, Cultural Activities Network from Catalonia (CAT) and is a recipient of funding from the EU Culture Programme 2007-2013.

The artworks respond to the former railway lines, their heritage and local environment, considering the railway’s original impact on the community and the environment and examining how the change of use has now impacted on local economies and lifestyles.

This conference, hosted by the University of Northampton School of The Arts, is aimed at artists, curators, arts professionals, arts organizations and art students.

In addition there will be reflection on outdoor public art and events practice in the UK and Europe by leading independent speakers, culminating with an open Q&A session with all speakers and project managers from the three regions.

Date: 19th of November 2014 from 9am to 6pm.
Location: Avenue Campus
Address: Newton Grand Hall, The University of Northampton, Avenue Campus, St George's Avenue, Northampton NN2 6JD
