Cornerhouse in Manchester have commissioned a new provocative essay from Charles Leadbeater called The Art of With. The essay addresses questions grappled with by many arts organisations, such as:
– What do the advent of the web, collaborative practice and open source ways of working mean for the arts and art organisations?
– How do artists, audiences and other stakeholders really get involved with programming and evaluating arts venues? – What does it mean for curators, programmers and traditional structures of arts organisations?
In true WeThink [read] / [watch] style, the essay is created so that readers can think, comment and contribute around every paragraph! This exciting interaction with the content will lead up to the discussions held at the live Art of With Seminar.
