Our pioneering forums and briefings for artists, curators, London boroughs and others involved in commissioning art in public space, aim to develop knowledge, disseminate examples of good practice, and provide networking and discussion opportunities between peers.

Local authority officers’ briefings
For all boroughs across London, these specialist briefings are a vital opportunity for cross-departmental networking and professional development. They are designed to bring together officers from the departments of planning, culture, regeneration, and environment, involved in the delivery of the public realm, to hear from a wide range of expert speakers.

Artists’ and curators’ days
Specialist sessions for artists and curators, these days are centred on visits to outstanding art projects in public space, either in London or further afield, and talks from the artists and curators involved.
