'Improfessional Organising'

WS cropped WEB

Eelyn Lee has been invited to speak at The Artist's Journey #3, a two-day event of talks and presentations by artists and researchers on forging a career out of art. This year's theme is 'Improfessional Practices' - a provocation that sets out to challenge how higher education students are constantly being told to “professionalise” themselves for a competitive market. In her presentation, Eelyn will consider social practice as a mode of improfessional organising by looking at examples of practice and the work of Social Art Network. Eelyn says,

"By sitting outside of the art education, art market and gallery systems, social practice artists are forced to create their own means of organising to establish systems of support, validation and critical thinking. However, one of the most valuable skills a social practice artist has is the ability to create spaces conducive for building alternative modes of organising."

The event takes place in Sheffield on 13th & 14th February. Free tickets can be booked here.

The Artists Journey was founded through a partnership between Art and Design at Sheffield Hallam University and Yorkshire and Humber Visual Arts Network [YVAN].
