ONLINE Toolkit: Working Outside the Gallery

Thursday, 20 May 2021
1 – 3pm

With arts spaces facing increasing challenges as we emerge for the pandemic, will there be a greater need to seek other places to make, share and support art? Join Rebecca Beinart for this toolkit on working outside of the gallery. Rebecca will share some of her own experiences of working on self-initiated and commissioned projects, social practice, and collaborations across different disciplines. The workshop will use reflective exercises and discussion to explore: why work outside the gallery; how this could expand your practice; building reciprocal relationships; the politics of participation; translating between different fields; and the rich and messy world of making art outside of art spaces. There will also be time to look at funding, opportunities and networks around socially engaged practice and art in the public realm.

She develops research-led, collaborative and site-based projects that evolve through long term engagement with places and people. She makes sculpture, installation and performance, and uses live engagement and public dialogue to reflect on collective histories and futures, social and environmental justice, knowledge-making, and the politics of public space. Rebecca is currently developing a new programme of public artworks and events for Crow Park, Keswick – a Trust New Art commission with the National Trust North Lakes (2020-21).  Alongside her work as an artist, she works as the Engagement Curator at Primary, an artist-led space in Nottingham, running a public programme of commissions, workshops and events.
