Pallant House Gallery
4 – 6 May 2018
Hosted by Outside In, this year’s European Outsider Art Association Conference focuses on the Artist’s Voice, celebrating the work of excluded and non-traditional artists and sharing best practice in the field through a series of presentations, key note speeches, and workshops delivered by artists and practitioners. The key note speech to open the conference on the Friday evening will be given by multi-disciplinary artist Bobby Baker, who created the touring exhibition Diary Drawings: Mental Illness and Me 1997 – 2008, and was commissioned as part of the London 2012 Unlimited project for the Cultural Olympiad.
Presenters at the conference include the Living Museum (the Netherlands), Out by Art (Sweden), Venture Arts (UK), Joy of Sound (UK), and Look Kloser (UK). Panel discussions will focus on supporting the artist’s voice and exhibiting the artist’s voice, and panellists will include Garvald Artists (Scotland), Headway East London (UK), Arts Project Australia (Australia), Blue Circus (Finland), Creahm/MadMusee (Belgium), and Creative Minds (UK).
Tickets are priced at £150 for the full weekend. There are options to add on a dinner at Pallant House Gallery following the key note speech on the Friday, and you can join Outside In for a VIP programme in the days leading up to the conference for an additional £75.
