Art, Access and Agency – Art Sites of Enabling

Conference, 7 – 9 October 2021


Through this event we seek to raise awareness about difference, diversity and discrimination on and well beyond the campus. In this regard our primary focus is upon the manner in which contemporary art and the myriad forms of practice and research associated therewith may act as a catalyst for change.
