COMMUNITY TALKS - Light Up Poole Up Symposium

Friday 22nd February 1pm till 5.30pm followed by a tour of Light Up Poole

Location: St James Church

Artists, industry and community

Across the world public art festivals are recognised as an approach to connecting communities, enabling cultural dialogues and reimagining local industry.

This Symposium is an opportunity to talk to the festival artists and organisers from Light Up Pool as well as representatives of UK commercial and cultural agencies. 

The goal is to reflect on the unique relationship between community arts, technology and industry in and around Poole and to encourage dialogue between local business, arts and community.

We expect the event to be of use to artists, local schools, charities and businesses.

The afternoon will start with lunch and informal introductions there will then be two short sessions of talks by artists and agencies followed by short round table discussions and questions.
