Value Added Conference, London

12 November 2008, 10am-6pm

SPACE Triangle, 129-131 Mare Street, London E8 3RH

Artquest, in partnership with SPACE, presents Value Added, a one-day conference for artists and commissioners exploring questions of value in relation to socially engaged artistic practice.

With the emphasis placed on participation and social exclusion in current European, central and local government cultural and regeneration policies, there has been an explosion of socially engaged projects in recent years.

This one-day conference will bring together key figures from London, UK and overseas to discuss issues specific to London but equally the wider questions of the value and ownership of contemporary arts practice. It offers practitioners (artists and those who work with them) new perspectives on the opportunities for socially engaged practice in London currently and the professional and critical issues inherent in this type of work.

The theme of 'value' is the focus for the conference: the value of this type of practice to commissioners, participants and artists, questions of how we frame and present this value, and how artists and commissioners together can express and capture value.
