I will be one of the keynote speakers for “Art and Social Engagement: Challenges and Opportunities” International Conference, Oct 26th and 27th 2017, at Vilnius City Hall, Vilnius, Lithuania.
The conference will bring together researchers, academics, artists, social workers and policymakers to discuss on the role of art in the way of social change. It aims to encourage debate around various forms and methods of applied art in the context of contemporary social, political, environmental, technological and
economic challenges. The conference will focus on the aesthetics, politics and history of applied art
with a particular focus on performing arts, existing and future potential role of socially engaged art practices.
