Constellations ° Assemblies
Online Event Programme
Taking place between March and November 2022, Constellations ° Assemblies are series of free online events curated and delivered by UP Projects in partnership with Flat Time House and Liverpool Biennial. The events are open to all artists, curators and practitioners active and/or interested in the expanded field of public art.
The programme will explore several urgent lines of enquiry and the events will provide attendees with the opportunity to learn more about contemporary, socially engaged art and public art debates in relation to the lines of enquiry. These will be shaped around the following questions: Is context only half the work? How can socially engaged practice inspire structural change? What is the role of democracy in social practice - can all voices be heard? How can we move beyond sustainability? How can we rethink the memorial?
The Assemblies will take place within UP Projects’ digital participation space, The Hall involving a range of UK and international speakers.
