Event description

Description

Backend x The Art House
Wakefield
Saturday 25th May
13:00 - 17:30

Backend is a series of sessions around the UK, looking at the logistics and processes of how artist-led organisations work - “our backends” - because they are important for structural change as opposed to performing short term solutions. Through sharing practice, experiences and aspirations, together we aim to devise some sort of collaborative “code of conduct” that can be used as a public resource and to hold ourselves accountable.

The third event in the series will be held at The Art House Wakefield with Gill Crawshaw, Kyla Harris and members of Association of Queer Ethnic Minorities: Larry, April and Emmanuel. The session will focus on ways to overcome and remove the invisible, organisational and physical hurdles that restrict access to artist-led activity for underrepresented people. Everyone will have the chance to share and question what they are currently doing, and collectively devise actions, guidelines and policies for artist led organisations.

We are able to provide free childcare for children age 4+ if you need childcare for the event please email info@12ocollective.com to confirm a space. Our volunteer childminder is not able to look after under 4s but they are welcome to attend the event with you. Unfortunately, we are not able to provide childcare if you’ve booked after 18th May, as we are required to confirm details with the childminder one week before the event date.

The Art House Wakefield is a wheelchair accessible venue and has accessible toilets for more info visit: the-arthouse.org.uk/about/access/
