The 2017 Canterbury Arts Conference (CArtsCon) will be looking at 'Art for Change'.
Change is typically seen as making something different, developing it, and/or moving it from one place or state to another. But 'change' can also refer to loose coins — the few pennies we have left over — or to money in general.
CArtsCon 2017 will fuse these concepts into a lively debate looking at whether art can drive change or influence moods and minds, if worthwhile art can be created with little money, and how powerful arts movements can be created. In short, how can art change hearts and minds and how does money factor in this?
Come along for talks, plenaries, and workshops taking place from 9am to 5pm everyday, with additional events taking place in the events. Take a look at the full schedule for the event.
Would you like to speak or share your work at the conference? CArtsCon is looking for academic paper presentations, topical speakers, participants for an industry panel looking at ‘The Role of the Arts in a Changing Society’, and submissions of short films (max. 8 minutes). Find out more here.
