Netwerk: Socially Disadvantaged People

Netwerk, 10 June 2011

This event was attended by staff from Fabrica, Netwerk and aspex. The mini-conference was an opportunity for LCP staff to present successful projects to the partnership, as well as to find out about other projects and organisations that were addressing the issues of social disadvantage from the local region. As well as a workshop in which each organisation presented their work, Laurence Hill gave a talk on Fabrica’s Rendezvous programme, which aims to increase engagement in contemporary visual arts for audiences which are over 70, and Annelies Tyberghein from Netwerk gave a talk on the work that has been done by Wiels Art Centre to engage people that are socially disadvantaged. There was also a presentation by Dirk Seghers from Recyclart in Brussels, an art centre that has a working space for long-term unemployed people.
