This one-day seminar is centred on exploring the potential and role of the arts and creative practice in addressing critical global challenges. In particular, we are interested in discussing:

* Where and how artists are engaging with social and environmental issues.

* The challenges, opportunities and implications of accessing and engaging vulnerable individuals and communities through the arts and practice.

* How community-based arts can contribute to improvements in the welfare of those living in vulnerable conditions.

* Interdisciplinary challenges associated with bringing together science and arts perspectives in addressing critical social and environmental issues.

The event will include an in-depth review of an arts-community research project based in Rajasthan, India ( where team members are looking to address water scarcity in a rural part of the country. Further presentations will explore the role of arts in other critical contexts. The project is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and UWE, Bristol.
