A Different Game: Young people working with art and artists
The 2015 engage International Conference
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall & venues across Glasgow, 19 & 20 November
Fringe events across Glasgow 18, 19 & 21 November
The engage International Conference 2015 explored how young people engage with art and artists, looking at practice in the UK and internationally. From the apposite local context of Glasgow, at the time of the Turner Prize and following the Scotlandwide GENERATION programme which celebrated 25 years of contemporary art practice, the programme had a strong focus on education and participatory and peer-led practice in the visual arts.
It explored new ways of working with young people that break down traditional hierarchies, creating space for deeper levels of collaboration. What are the impacts of these new forms of partnership? How are they opening up the potentiality of creativity for young people and making a difference in their lives?
