March 5, 2016 – Panel Discussion: “What is the Role of the Public in Public Art?”
There is an increasing demand for the public to have a stronger voice in the selection and design of a public art project, particularly when it is publicly funded. This places an additional demand on the artist, which may or may not integrate well with his/her own artistic practice.
Please join our panel of arts and community experts as we explore the role of public participation in an arts practice. Panelists include:
- Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra
- Poet Laureate derek beaulieu
- Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) Instructor, Alana Bartol
- Independent arts administrator Ciara McKeown
The panel will be moderated by Sarah Iley, manager of Arts and Culture at The City of Calgary. Each panelist will provide a brief presentation followed by a series of questions posed to the panel.
Date: Saturday, March 5, 2016
Time: 1 – 4 p.m.
