The Institute of Urban Dreaming (IUD) is hosting a one day conference examining how contemporary art practices engage with the current housing crisis.

The event will consist of a series of talks and round table discussions.  It aims to consider the encounter between art and housing in a critical, trans-disciplinary way.  It will consider housing and art practice before and beyond the current trend for socially engaged art.  It will also debate the ethics and politics of practices that relate to gentrification and displacement.

This conference is part of IUD’s public events programme to coincide with their exhibition Promising Home, on show at PHM until Sunday 15 January 2017.Arts Council England

The event has been funded by The Arts Council.
