Art on the Streets is a series of symposiums I organised together with Dr Susan Hansen.
Art in the Streets II: Art as Intervention (March 2018) was a one day symposium featuring the latest work and current thinking of 15 internationally renowned artists, curators, and researchers working on street art, graffiti and urban contemporary art. The theme – Art as Intervention – focused on urban art as a critical form of intervention, and as a powerful tool for addressing social issues. See full list of speaers here.
The first Art on the Streets was first held in October 2016. It symposium explored the diversity of our creative responses to our changing urban environment – from street art and graffiti to yarn bombing and urban photography. Speakers discussed our creative connections to, material engagements with, and affective responses to, the urban environment, and the relevance of contemporary urban interventions to a critical understanding of the lived city.
