Make Public Art for Civil Engagement!
May 4, 2017 at 6:00 pm–8:00 pm
How can “civic engagement” become “civil engagement” in the service of art in public places? What sorts of possible — even necessary — creative engagements -– and conditions — generate the openings that move people together? What kinds of public art interventions will ease communication among people — whether on the same or on a different page?
Join this energizing workshop where we will team up to design some solutions in real time, with Susan Israel, President and Founder, Climate Creatives & Energy Necklace Project, and Ron Mallis, Executive Director of BostonAPP/Lab, at Boston Society of Architects. Wine and snacks will be provided.
Climate Creatives and Boston APP/Lab are teaming up for the first time to bring this hands-on workshop to the public. This is the debut workshop for us on this topic, as well as the first time we will cross-pollinate our methods! Climate Creatives and BostonApp/Lab each have been supporting the making of public art, and strategizing how to advance art in public places, in their own ways. Post-election, we are directing our usual work to address this urgent topic in this workshop. Join us at this unique event!
