SPACES is participating in the Unruly Engagements Conference: On the Social Turn in Contemporary Art & Design, with a potluck dinner, collaboratively presented with Social Practices Art Network (SPAN).

During this interdisciplinary conference that will examine various approaches to social practices, we wanted to get out of the academic setting and get a little messy. Is it socially engaging to have a food fight? We’re not sure, but we’re willing to find out. We hope that the potluck will encourage a feisty wrap up conversation from the 3 day-long conference hosted at Cleveland Institute of Art.

This is an opportunity to have an informal and casual gathering – a chance for artists, culture workers, community activists, students and other types of organizers to meet and get to know each other, whether you’ve attended the conference or not.

Our potluck partner is the Social Practices Art Network (SPAN), a resource for individuals, organizations, community groups and institutions that are interested in new genre arts forms and practices. During the potluck (SPAN) will discuss their nascent project, (SPAN)Together Cleveland, which will provide a snapshot of what it means to be a socially or community engaged cultural worker in Cleveland.

This event is free and open to the public, but we ask that you bring drinks or a side dish to share.
