Event details

What is the relationship between art and social value? Robert Teed and Paula Jackson examine the capacity of art as a vehicle for social change, as an advocacy tool for human rights, and in a relational sense as a means of developing the self. Beginning with case studies from the New School House Gallery, the presentation extends to ask how art can engage communities and change societies for the better.
