During May I shall be attending Open Engagement (OE) in New York thanks to an a-n Artist Bursary. It’s an annual artist-led conference (in its 10th year) dedicated to expanding the dialogue around, and creating a site of care for, the field of socially engaged art. The conference highlights the work of tran-sdisciplinary artists, activists, students, scholars, community members, and organisations working within the complex social issues and struggles of our time.

I intend to focus on the following questions: ‘How can we ensure that an ethics of environmental symbiosis and equality amongst all peoples is not only sustained, but updated and informed by future generations via Arts Practice?’
