Event description

Description

You are invited to a special symposium, presenting talks and discussions with a number of experienced IN SITU artists and the European Capital of Culture 2023, Dundee team.

IN SITU is a pan-European network of 25 partners in 17 countries who advocate, commission, co-produce and distribute the work of artists in all art forms in public space.

Moderated by Beth Bate, Director at Dundee Contemporary Arts, discussion with the audience and a group of specialists will focus on the potential of Dundee's West Ward Works as a cultural facility, accessing and delivering international collaborations, the IN SITU network and tendencies in the development of Art in Public Space.

Within the context of European Capitals of Culture, the afternoon will investigate the type of creative work being developed across Europe, drawing upon the experience of our artist guests. This section will include a discussion on European identity, accessing opportunities, making collaborations work across borders and across art forms.

As well as an insight into international networking and the European Capital of Culture programme, the event will offer a crucial guide for artists and producers seeking to work outside both their home country and their comfort zone.
