CcGU7VxUAAATjAPMarch 5, 2016 – Panel Discussion: “What is the Role of the Public in Public Art?”

There is an increasing demand for the public to have a stronger voice in the selection and design of a public art project, particularly when it is publicly funded. This places an additional demand on the artist, which may or may not integrate well with his/her own artistic practice.

Please join our panel of arts and community experts as we explore the role of public participation in an arts practice. Panelists include:
  • Councillor Gian-Carlo Carra
  • Poet Laureate derek beaulieu
  • Alberta College of Art + Design (ACAD) Instructor, Alana Bartol
  • Independent arts administrator Ciara McKeown
 The panel will be moderated by Sarah Iley, manager of Arts and Culture at The City of Calgary. Each panelist will provide a brief presentation followed by a series of questions posed to the panel.
