Eelyn Lee Selected to Lead Artists' Forum

Peckham Platform

Eelyn Lee has been selected by Artquest to put together a group of artists working at the forefront of social and collaborative practice to form a PEER FORUM. Between February and July 2016 the group will meet once a month at Peckham Platform to reflect on each other's work and exchange ideas around process driven arts practice.

With 20 years experience of collaborative working in a range of settings Eelyn has brought together a dynamic group of artists all of whom make work through varying degrees of social engagement. Over the six months they will explore how artists engage with community, histories and place and the politics that create the contexts for these.

In light of Assemble’s recent win of the Turner Prize they we will aim to take an overview of the history of community arts practice with an eye on how it could develop in the future.

Follow their discussions and find out about the artists taking part on their blog, Collaborative Arts Practice.
