A Symposium exploring the Impact of Location on Art Education and the Art School
June 27, 2015 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm
This event is organised by Q-Art in Collaboration with the Foundation Art and Design Course at Swansea College of Art at the University of Wales Trinity Saint David in partnership with Mission Gallery. Inspired by Beck and Cornford’s book The Art School and The Culture Shed, it invites people from across the sector (school, FE, HE, arts council, arts organisations) to discuss the theme of location and art education.
Key Questions might include:
What relationship does the art school have to its local community, schools, and arts scene?
