Booking now open for the 2017 Engage International Conference

We are pleased to announce that booking is now open for the 2017 Engage International Conference.


The Whole Picture: Rethinking diversity



Hull City Hall and venues around Hull



29 - 30 November 2017, plus fringe events to be announced.


It’s time to rethink the conversation surrounding equality, diversity and access.


The visual arts can act as a catalyst for change. Arts educators, artists, makers and teachers are often under pressure to simply deliver, but could benefit from time to reflect on their practice.


There isn’t a ‘one size fits all’ toolkit to address the myriad issues surrounding race, ethnicity, identity, disability, gender and sexuality; these issues are individual and complex. This conference will give delegates the opportunity to explore what they do and why they do it, moving beyond box-ticking exercises, being realistic and getting to the heart of often thorny, and sometimes controversial issues.


There are a number of bursaries available through Square Peg, Engage and Engage Scotland. Find out more and apply.


Book now to take advantage of great early bird rates.
