Social Art Assembly - Tate Exchange

The Social Art Assembly is a free invitation to come together to reflect on the Social Art Summit and take part in conversations exploring where Social Art Network [SAN] can go from here. Using an Open Space process for groups to think, work and take action together in a self-organised, non-hierarchical way, we will work collaboratively to develop a collective vision for the future of SAN, including potentially developing a Social Art Biennial and answering the question: How can we develop the Social Art Network into the future?

Health, Anxiety and Capitalism
Dec

Health, Anxiety and Capitalism

Last year, The Culture Capital Exchange launched an Arts and Health Forum as a platform to be used by our member researchers, staff as well as those working in the arts, cultural sectors and/or health related fields.

So far the forum has been used to host physical events, and it has also catalysed peer-to-peer discussions as well as horizon scan for funding bids. It also acts as a mini-hub within the network to bring researchers together with interests in this area.

This academic year, they are continuing the work of the forum with a series of activities over the coming months focusing on some critical themes including: Anxiety and Capitalism, Neurodiversity and Creativity and Walking.

The first roundtable event Health, Anxiety and Capitalism will be opened by presentations from Dr Catherine Maffioletti (Ravensbourne University London), Dr Ayesha Ahmad(University College London, St George's University of London), Dr Dan Taylor (Goldsmiths University), Tamar Shlaim (Marketing Director, Repeater Books).

Using the recent publication of the book k-punk: The Collected and Unpublished Writings of Mark Fisher (Repeater Books, November 2018) as a starting point, we will explore how mental health issues can be understood as systemic within neo-liberalism, and how collectively envisaging concepts of leisure in a post-capitalist world can impact wellbeing.

The event is aimed at researchers, artists and creative practitioners, working with or interested in radical approaches to health and wellbeing.

All participants will have the opportunity to share their research/practice interests, and discuss the future direction and potential of Anxiety and Capitalism as an ongoing thematic within the forum.

Please note: If you are an academic from a non-member institution please get in touch before reserving your place.

If you are unable to attend please let us know as soon as possible so we can free up the space for somebody else.

Navigating the Art World Seminar with Doug Fishbone

Saturday and Sunday, October 24-25, 2015
Hackney, London


Special Guest Speaker: Sam Chatterton Dickson, Director of Sales, Lisson Gallery

This two-day seminar offers an overview of issues in professional practice and development for visual artists. It is particularly aimed to advise artists and students making the transition from BA or MA courses to the "real" world of professional practicing artists.

A unique feature of the seminar is that each participant will have a one-on-one hour-long private tutorial in which they can focus on issues and questions particular to their situation. It also provides students with a detailed course manual which is a useful long-term reference.

The first session is an all-day lecture/discussion from 10.00 - 18.00, which will cover the following:

- Managing Materials ie CV / Portfolio

- Marketing and Self-Promotion

- Networking and Press

- Dealing with galleries

- Looking for work / Interning

- Useful resources

- Creative approaches to funding projects

- How to conduct a successful research campaign - using the Internet as a strategic tool

We are fortunate to have a special session with guest speaker Sam Chatterton Dickson, who is the director of Sales at Lisson Gallery, one of the world's leading contemporary art galleries, who will be taking about working with galleries.

lissongallery.com

The second day is devoted to individual tutorials.

Students will have a private hour-long coaching session/tutorial to discuss whatever issues they would like.
