Becoming Public Art: Placemaking and Public Art
Becoming Public Art: Working Models & Case Studies for Art in Public is a nine-week virtual summit presented by the City of Markham, in partnership with ART+PUBLIC UnLtd. In a series of virtual sessions open to the public, professionals in the field will present the broad range of perspectives that shape public art making today.
In Session 6: Placemaking and Public Art, we will explore the following questions: How to address indigeneity in the process of placemaking? How to bring the conversation about land rights into public art practice through an indigenous perspective?
