Paradox Conference September 2011

Outside In: The Permeable Art School

Hosted by CIT Crawford College of Art and Design, Ireland

Outside In: The Permeable Art School aimed to explore how the contemporary Art School is no longer an ‘ivory tower’ but an institution that reaches out and influences the cultural landscape that surrounds it and the means of reciprocity by which society infiltrates and influences the Art School.

The Keynote Speaker was Lewis Biggs OBE FRSA FLJMU Curator, Writer, Cultural Consultant, and for the last ten years the Director of the Liverpool Biennial. He spoke on The Permeable Urban Fabric – Visual Artists Reclaim the Street.
