The jury session, hosted by Tate Liverpool, will take place on the 31st of October at the grand Council Chamber of Liverpool Town Hall, and will bring together artists, experts, and users of socially engaged artistic practices in a one-day conversation that will try to merge the procedures and criteria of an evaluation process with the discursive elements that characterize panel discussions on the relationship between artistic practices and social change. The registration to attend the jury will open in September.
These videos have been generously put together by the shortlisted artists to represent their project within the jury session. Please enjoy and get ready for the 31st of October!
