Artist manifesto at STATE OF PLAY Symposium

STATE OF PLAY - Art and Culture in Scotland Today Symposium

Saturday 1st October
Cinema 1, Dundee Contemporary Arts (DCA)
11am - 4pm

Working as Research Assistant for AHM (Sam Ainsley, David Harding and Sandy Moffat), I have been heavily involved in the planning and organisation of this event. I will be performing my own personal one minute manifesto at the event.

AHM’s third and final State of Play: Art and Culture in Scotland Today symposium will bring together the main themes of previous symposia in a debate about the role of art and culture in shaping Scotland’s future. A key element of the day will be the spoken delivery of one-minute artist manifestos where artists have the opportunity to give voice to their concerns and ambitions about where they feel visual art stands today and what the future might hold.

Speakers are Gerry Hassan a leading writer and critic on culture and politics, Jenny Brownrigg Exhibition Director The Glasgow School of Art, artist Ross Sinclair and Jean Urquhart MSP.
