*This event is now sold out* How is accessibility, ownership and collaboration in socially engaged art balanced with artistic integrity, quality and the pushing of boundaries? Visual artist John Conway will deliver an online workshop for artists interested in exploring the challenges of merging their interests and expertise with the interests and expertise of participants in community settings.

This workshop is taking place on Friday 9 October, 11am-12pm, as part of the Well Festival of Arts & Wellbeing 2020.

Admission is free. Places are limited and advance booking is essential.

John Conway is a visual artist and cultural producer who works extensively in community and health settings. Through his practice he considers the role and capacity of visual art, and the artist, in non-traditional settings. This occurs through solo work and collaborative projects that engage participants in discursive processes to explore the potential and value of visual arts in relation to their specific circumstances. His work also occurs through research and project production.

The Well Festival of Arts and Wellbeing is funded by the Arts Council, the HSE and Waterford City and County Council, with additional funding for the Renew programme strand from Creative Ireland, and generous support from Sanofi. The festival is presented by Waterford Healing Arts Trust, Garter Lane Arts Centre and Waterford City and County Libraries.
