Tue 9 Oct 18.00, free, booking essential

As cultural workers, how do we participate in the organisation of our societies? What is the future of cultural work that aims to influence civic participation?

How can culture contribute to urgent concerns about local life? In her first public lecture as BALTIC Professor, Andrea Phillips will ask how arts institutions and higher education institutions ‘speak’ to the people who live around them, and how the BxNU institute is learning to listen.

Andrea Phillips is BALTIC Professor and Director of the BxNU Institute of Contemporary, formed and programmed by BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and Northumbria University.

Arrival and refreshments from 18.00, lecture starts at 18.30.
