Making Space 2010

News from Young at Art on their 2010 Making Space forum at Belfast Children's Festival:

You are warmly invited to attend the annual Making Space forum, curated and coordinated in partnership with the University of Ulster, as part of Belfast Children’s Festival 2010.

Making Space (formerly Open Space) is an annual discussion forum set up by Young at Art in 2001. Following the successes of previous years, Making Space 2010 brings together international practitioners, local artists, policy makers, arts organisations, academics and students to share and interrogate current practices, issues and concerns in the arts for children.

I would like to draw your particular attention to Making Space 3: Seminar: Space to Play. A unique confluence of organisations including Playboard, the Forum for an Alternative Belfast, Belfast Exposed and PS2 will come together to explore how children and young people are considered in our built environment and where space is left for them to play creatively.
