Incidental Unit (IU) invite you to an ‘incidental meeting’ that seeks to reignite and enrich debates around the role of the artist in contemporary society and, more specifically, around current modes of socially engaged practice in the UK.

About

This first public programme organised by IU will explore the ongoing relevance of Artist Placement Group’s (APG) ways of working by hosting six public meetings led by artists at public institutions in Birmingham, Bristol, Edinburgh, Liverpool, Manchester and Newcastle. These meetings call upon anyone to share thoughts and practice to continue researching the impact of APG (Artist Placement Group) and O+I (Organisation and Imagination) today. This programme aims to collect material, facilitate conversation and inspire action.

These events will be followed by a large-scale public gathering of 100+ artistic practitioners in London at South London Gallery with special contributions from The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) of the University of Westminster. An online resource will disseminate collected outcomes from the programme.

This is a limited capacity event, please book
