Public Art Now: Workshops

Organised through group discussion and participation, these day-long workshops will each provide attendees with the opportunity to learn about the processes involved in producing new forms of public art.

A new international survey publication in association with the European Network of Public Art Producers and Creative Time (US) will bring together 40 of the most influential public artworks to have emerged in the past decade.
