Social Engineering for Beginners: short stories about public art | 13 June 2015

How can art be used outside of the frame? Independent curator Valerie Geselev presents an interactive lecture on public art, or how to look at creativity as a tool for social purposes and public development.

The talk is based on an inspiring archive of art projects that step outside of galleries and use imagination to construct a better world, including photographs, videos and short stories about artists who act as social engineers: fighting inequality with performance; promoting peace in the Middle East with photography; stopping xenophobia with installations; overcoming breakups with story-telling and facing the fear of crime with street art.

Date: Saturday 13 June 2015
Time: 4pm

Entrance is FREE and all are welcome.
