EventTate Presents, Peckham Platform: Methodologies of Socially Engaged Art

This event presents a panel discussion focusing on Peckham Platform’s continuing research into socially engaged art. It also forms part of the interdisciplinary research project ‘Methodologies of Socially Engaged Art: Process, Politics and Practice’ between Peckham Platform and cultural geographer Dr. Danny McNally (Royal Holloway University of London).

Chaired by Paul Goodwin, Professor of Transnational Curating and UAL Chair of Black Art and Design and trustee at Peckham Platform, the event will include talks by Danny McNally, curator Marijke Steedman and artists Barby Asante (The South London Black Music Archive, To Gypsyland, sorryyoufeeluncomfortable) and Sarah Cole (Tribe, Care Full, Smother) on the working methods and philosophies of socially engaged artists. This will be followed by open discussion with the panel, as well as time for questions from the audience. Hosted by Tate Modern, this event aims to bring together key actors in socially engaged art including artists, educators, academics, curators and policy figures.

Following the panel there will be a networking drinks reception.
