Impact in the Arts Think Tank

(by invitation only)
Friday, January 17, 2014

In January, ARC is hosting a small 'think tank' (invitation only) on socially engaged art and performance. Participants include noteworthy socially engaged artists and representatives of the Triangle Lab, theExploratoriumBlade of GrassCal PerformancesSan Francisco Art Commission, the David Brower Center, advisory boards to the Irvine Foundation, and other organizations. In civic and philanthropic circles, artists are often asked to measure impacts and to describe "success" in communities. Currently, there is significant debate about the means of assessment that different sectors use to evaluate public art projects. In our shared reading, workshops, and brainstorming, we hope to address the opportunities and obstacles of cross-sector engagement, and we will ask how best to explore "impact" in different artistic models. What are the assumptions and values behind different modes of assessment? What kinds of alternative modes would we propose? How might assessment be integrated into the processes of an art project?

Our hope is that the initial "Impact Conversation" will compliment a series of public dialogues that ARC is planning with the Triangle Lab and other Bay Area partners throughout the spring semester on different themes in socially engaged art. These public conversations will explore ideas surrounding socially engaged artworks in visual and performing arts networks and in civic spheres. We hope to sustain an ongoing cross-sector arts platform in which different artists and institutions can reflect together about the similarities and differences amongst their goals, methods, and values. 

Impact in the Arts Roundtable is co-sponsored by the Triangle Lab.
