Truth-Dare-Art Social Practice Forum on Friday 12th - Saturday 13th July 2019, offers creative professional development through cross-disciplinary learning and the powerful use of action based-art.


This is for you if you are an artist, educator, or represent a community organisation. The forum is hosted by CAS Artist Laurence Rushby who has re-imagined professional development through her emerging Truth-Dare-Art methodology. This is the second event that puts Truth-Dare-Art in action for mutual learning. Join her to be immersed in playful, on-the-spot local investigations, to test daring-actions and create connections to tackle the issues you care about.

The forum aims to build relationships and create a bridge between artists, education and community settings, building trust, understanding, and connection. The event will culminate in a publication/report drawing on our accumulated knowledge so you will be able to use to continue the conversation in your workplace and local communities.

Day 1;     
When: Fri 12 July, 10.30am - 5pm     

Where: John Hansard Gallery Education Room, Southampton, SO14 7DU

Day one will be based in the amazing John Hansard Gallery, in the heart of Southampton new cultural quarter, and will include presentations of artists’ practices, talks (speakers to be announced) and an interactive encounter with the exhibited work. A delicious lunch will be provided on site. The day will end with an opportunity to further spend time to chat, breathe and eat well.

Day 2    
When: Sat 13 July, 10am - 4pm    

Where: Andover Radio Station, Portland House, SP10 1LP

Andover Radio Station places us in the heart of a non-profit community organisation. The day will include practical, creative testing of ideas and a visit to CAS for active participation in the art of award-winning CAS Resident Artist Jade Montserrat.

What you can expect

The forum aims to create a bridge between artists, education and community settings, building trust, understanding, and connection.

It will ask;

  • What is the ‘true’ benefit of art in our everyday undertakings (professional or personal)?
  • How can art help us live up to our values in our own jobs, lives, places?
  • How can we maximise, share, transfer these benefits to our schools, communities, places?
  • How can we be the change we want to see?

Laurence will seek feedback from attendees to know how they felt, what they learnt, and the event will be recorded. In this way, you will be contributing to her PhD research into creative pedagogies. 

Teachers can look forward to gaining new and inspiring approaches to;

  • Developing your students’ response-ability to personal and social themes
  • Engaging hard-to-reach pupils using creative live-art actions
  • Delivering a combined art, citizenship, diversity and ethics curriculum
  • Addressing social issues in lesson plans to develop well rounded, confident young people.
