Bringing together key thinkers, artists and cultural workers, this symposium reflects critically on pressing issues raised by relations between the arts, democracy and the city in the 21st century.

Speakers include: Jen Harvie, Professor of Contemporary Theatre and Performance at Queen Mary University of London and Malcolm Miles, Professor in the School of Architecture, Design and Environment at Plymouth University.

Framing the symposium is the Ancient Greece episode on show at Tate Liverpool as part of Liverpool Biennial, where classical sculptures from the collection at National Museums Liverpool are on show alongside newly commissioned art works by Koenraad Dedobbeleer, Jumana Manna and Betty Woodman, among others. The artists imagine a world where ancient Greek and contemporary artists have collaborated; merging past, present and future into a single fiction, just like the city’s architects did when they designed Liverpool’s neoclassical buildings in the 1980s.

Jointly hosted by Tate Liverpool and Liverpool Hope University
