This Saturday 20 October, you are invited to participate on social media as we tweet, stream, and post content from ‘Social Practice: Truth or Dare?’ a peer-to-peer learning event for artists with a socially engaged art practice whether than means activism, social service, art in education. You may think of your practice as socially engaged through its audience participation or have been influenced by artists/writers who are socially engaged.
Over the weekend we will begin building a ‘map’ of social art practice, which we hope will be inspiring, informative, and collective experience.
Please use the hashtag #truthdareart and tag us at @casartists
