The conversationalists is a series of talks, performances, presentations and chatter that hopes to explore the notion of ‘social change’ and ‘social innovation’ within the arts. A three part series, the conversationalists will hope to offer varying insights into supports, challenges, warnings and ambivalences towards the language we use to describe what it is we do. What is Social Change? How can Social Innovation exist in the arts? This is where we start.
