Engage More Now : an international conference on the subject of public engagement

Engage More Now first day at the symposium: " ENGAGE MORE NOW! is an international conference on the subject of public engagement. The symposium will convene a group of experts to consider ongoing practices initiated by artists and museum professionals—both within and outside of institutions—that are designed to engage the public in discursive projects that may take the form of social practice, performance, or artistic intervention. Hosted by the Hammer, these conversations are intended to refine the methodological and theoretical framework for public engagement and to consider the multiple contexts for its display and reception."
