Social Making

Social Making is a biannual symposium developed and delivered by Take A Part. The event bring together artists, curators, community members, commissioners, policy makers, audiences, researchers and anyone with an interest in social practice in the arts. For Take A Part, social practice is collaborative and puts people at the heart of the artwork, and it is this spirit that we bring to our symposium. Each iteration of the symposium has been different but we always strive to move to a more active engagement with our delegates rather than the traditional conference experience.

Social Making 2020 has been cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We'll share our 2021 dates soon.

For the next iteration of Social Making, we are excited to provide four workshop opportunities, led by brilliant South-West based artists and companies, as well as a social practice networking event led by Contemporary Art Membership Plymouth (CAMP). Four presentations by national practitioners will touch on the potentials of social practice’s role in turbulent socio-political times.
