Front Room Film Screening Programme
In March 2022, a special programme of Front Room Film engages with Acts of Transfer, a project about returns, re-enactments, repetitions, and retellings. Beginning in 2021 as a collaboration between artist Katy Beinart and writer Lizzie Lloyd, Acts of Transfer documents and reactivates a selection of artworks from the past that contain elements of social engagement or public participation.

Acts of Transfer: Sharing Social Practice Workshop
hosted at Towner Eastbourne
19th May 2022

How do you meaningfully represent what happened in a project?
How do we re-create the ‘feel’ of a shared moment in time to share with audiences who weren’t there?
How do we understand what it meant to those involved and means to us now?

In this half day workshop at Towner Eastbourne artist Katy Beinart and writer Lizzie Lloyd will talk through some of the issues raised through their current project Acts of Transfer. They will be joined by Beverley Bennett and Benjamin A Owen, both working in engaged practice as artists and filmmakers. Together they will host an afternoon workshop/ talk/ performance inviting artists to experience the ‘working out’ of these questions together.
This workshop is for artists, students or practitioners who would like to share their social practices and who are interested in sharing ways of documenting this their work.
The event will take place in person at Towner Eastbourne.

Really Sayin’ Somethin’: Socially engaged and participatory research in art, architecture, and design Symposium
UNiversity of Brighton
20th May 2022

A one-day symposium exploring and sharing practice-based research in art, architecture & design that uses socially engaged or participatory methods. This event, which is open to practitioners and researchers working in HE and to students at all levels including undergraduate, postgraduate and PhD, sets out to explore some of the following questions:

How do socially engaged and participatory methods offer different understandings of what research can be?
What sort of outcomes do they produce? How can this work be documented, and shared in ways that acknowledge the collaborative and dialogic nature of the research?
What sort of challenges come with socially engaged and participatory research for the researcher and the participant?

The day will be split into two, with the morning sessions offering panel presentations by practitioners and researchers working in HE along with invited keynotes, and the afternoon with a series of roundtables where ECRs, undergraduate and postgraduate students can present work in progress for discussion.

A call out for papers for those who wish to present will be advertised in March 2022 and tickets for the event will be released in April 2022. To register your interest for the event please email Polly Wright, Programme Producer, Brighton CCA

Co-hosted and supported by School of Architecture, Technology and Engineering, School of Arts & Media and Experimental Design Practices Research and Enterprise Group (ExDP REG) at University of Brighton.
