A CraftNet South East and Crafts Council Seminar and Networking Event
Historic houses lie somewhere between domestic and public spaces. The histories of domestic use are etched into their fabric, but they now fulfil another public role. In recent years, many interventions in these spaces have seen artists and makers using contemporary craft to tell stories about the past and the present.
This seminar brings together key curators and artists to share their experience and knowledge and debate the issues that these unique environments lend to artist interventions.
The event is free, but you will need to pre-book your ticket here.
Speakers will include Christie Brown, artist and Professor of Ceramics at the University of Westminster in London; Dr Jerzy J. Kierkuć-Bieliński, Exhibitions Curator at Sir John Soane’s Museum, London; and Judy Ling Wong, the Honorary President of Black Environment Network.
Full speaker biographies and a programme of the day's events is available on the Eventbrite page.
CraftNet is an informal network of meetings, events and exchange to look at and share ways of developing and promoting contemporary craft. All are welcome – from commercial galleries to local authority museums, from organisations and trusts to individual makers, artists and curators.
