b-side Symposium - The Excursionist - How can tourism work for art and art work for tourism?

Categories:

Date: 
Thursday, 8 October 2015 to Friday, 9 October 2015
Opening: 
Thursday, 8 October 2015 - 8:00am

b-side invites you to join us for 2 days of conversation, creative provocation and intervention with guests from the world of art, heritage and environment. We will be exploring the impact of tourism on community, environment and economy and the role art can play.

With economic drivers increasingly defining national agendas and culture used as a tool for regeneration, is art responsible for contributing to the exploitation of ecologies and communities for the benefit of the tourist economy or can it be part of the solution?

Join b-side on 8 & 9 October, 2015with contributions from Artists Alistair Gentry, Jordan McKenzie, Katrina Palmer, Phil Smith + anthropologist Julie Crawshaw, James Lingwood (Artangel), Tom Munro (Dorset AONB), Joss Allen (Deveron Arts), Dr Nigel D Morpeth (Leeds Beckett University), Sue Jones (Whitstable Biennale) + more to be announced.

 £65 for both days including a delicious supper and lunch
