Out of the Past, Into the Present: Reframing Heritage through Art Practice
UWS is chairing a symposium at the Centre for Contemporary Arts (CCA) in Glasgow to shine a light on the powerful impact moving image and sound has on culture, heritage and our interpretations of the past.
The event (Wednesday 6 March) showcases how research and creative work have led to cultural regeneration and heritage reframings, with an afternoon of film screenings bringing the topics discussed during the panel sessions from media, film and music experts, to life.
UWS's School of Media, Culture and Society has established strong links with key arts partners and local authorities in Glasgow, including the CCA, with the symposium chaired by UWS's Professor Katarzyna Kosmala.
The event will focus on creative pedagogies in heritage activism and is aimed at MA Creative Media Practice, MA Music and Song Writing students. It is also open to interested members of the public, giving students and researchers taking part in the panel discussions the opportunity to showcase, debate and exchange ideas around their research and creative work with a broader audience.
