SCANZ 2013: The Art of Engagement

Author: Jock McQueenie


The Art of Engagement will address the role of the artist in technology mediated social participation with particular reference to partnerships between the arts, industry and communities in regional centres. This will be illustrated by examples from current projects in Queensland, Tasmania and Western Sydney. Having considerable experience in New Zealand, and in particular the Taranaki region, I would draw links between these examples and the local context.
