On 1st November Sonia Boyce and Loraine Leeson will present as part of Community Arts? Learning from the Legacy of Artists' Social Initiatives, a daylong conference convened by Liverpool Biennial and Andrea Phillips in association with Visible Award 2015 and Tate Liverpool. Dr Leeson will lead a panel considering the legacy and continuation of community art practices. It is part of a weekend of programmes that considers current approaches in socially engaged art.

This event will re-open conversations and instigate new ones, ensuring that important work undertaken in the 1970s and 1980s continues to resonate.
