Promising Home Conference – Art Practices & the Housing Crisis

The Institute of Urban Dreaming (IUD) is hosting a one-day conference examining how contemporary art practices engage with the current housing crisis. This is part of IUD’s public activities to explore and debate the issues central to the Promising Home exhibition at the People’s History Museum, Manchester.

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 & beyond the current trend for socially engaged art. It will also debate the ethics and politics of practices that relate to gentrification and displacement.
