Compass Symposium #1

A couple of weeks ago the Compass Live Art programme culminated in a weekend of activity around the public realm and socially engaged practice – 25-27 Nov, Leeds. I was the director of the Compass Symposium and Annie Lloyd was the director of the Compass Live Art Festival. http://compassliveart.org.uk/live-art-events/compass-symposium

The Symposium brought around 100 people from across the UK together from a range of disciplines and experiences; performers, artists, architects, geographers, curators and more. The focus was on live art as socially engaged practice and live art in the public realm. The Workshop-Discussions were informative and practical; carefully designed to ensure all participants could contribute to sharing and reflecting on practice, allowing dialogue to dig down into issues – proving beneficial for all those taking part.

The heart of the Symposium programme was a series of 4 Workshop-Discussions;

  • Sensing The City
  • Politics of Access
  • Intentions and Un-intentions
  • Intimacy and Generosity
