The Politics of Context

Workshop with Fiona Woods, artist and educator 

Presented by Create and The Dock

Time: 10 – 1pm

Relating the practice to the politics of institutions will also be considered. 

This workshop is aimed at both emerging and established artists working in collaborative and socially engaged arts.
