Conditions for Creative Communities

Explore and define the core elements for collaborative projects between artists, cultural organisations and communities.

Are you planning a creative project with a community? Members of Kettle’s Yard’s Open House programme lead an exploration of the core ingredients of creative collaborations in this one day symposium.

During the symposium participants collectively create a practical set of principles for embarking on collaborative programmes: The Conditions for Creative Communities.

Speakers include recent Open House Artists in Residence Isabella Martin and Emma Smith, community members and Kettle’s Yard’s programme team who are leading Open House. The conference will also welcome Kim Wide, Director and Beth Richards, Producer, from Efford Take a Part (TAP), Sarah Plumb, PhD Researcher from University of Leicester School of Museum Studies, Trish Scott and Fiona Parry from Turner Contemporary.

All welcome. This symposium is especially aimed at artists, cultural commissioners, community groups and local authority community development teams who are seeking to partner with artists, and arts organisations who already do work with artists and would like to share their practices.

Tate Exchange

Kettle’s Yard is a Founding Associate of Tate Exchange, a place for conversation and experimentation in the new Switch House in Tate Modern. Tate Exchange is an ambitious ‘open experiment’ which allows other organisations and members of the public to participate in Tate’s creative process, running events and projects on site and using art as a way of addressing wider issues in the world around us.

Inspired by Open House, Kettle’s Yard is exploring the principles for creating artwork in community settings.
