Social Intentions

Social Intentions was CCA's symposium on the use of social engagement within art institutions.

CCA’s public engagement programme aims to widen access to our programme and encourage social and cultural change explored through art. For us this is a very important moment of transition. Our approach towards public and social engagement is very open and we would like to use this symposium to bring socially engaged institutions together share different practices.

As part of this, we invited influential institutions from all over Europe to come together and share different practices. We believe their socially engaged approach is relevant in the current development of contemporary culture. The aim was to look at the benefits, as well as the pitfalls, of the use of social engagement when related to art institutions. The symposium included workshops and brainstorming sessions as well panel discussions, talks and presentations, which can be viewed below.
