We have partnered with Corridor8 to produce ‘In Your Hands’, a new digital publication focussing on the festival’s engagement programme. With contributions from our Engagement Curator Meghan Goodeve, Corridor8’s Managing Editor Lara Eggleton and writer and artist Jennifer Boyd.
Starting with the concept of ‘material literacy’, Yorkshire Sculpture International’s engagement programme sought to communicate and enact particular kinds of knowledge and learning that can only be gleaned through physical processes, and that are often sidelined in favour of the ocular.
With ‘In Your Hands’ there is a rare opportunity to reflect on the nature of arts engagement with criticality and expertise, paying close and careful attention to an area of contemporary programming that is rarely considered with the same depth as exhibitions.
Yorkshire Sculpture International 2019 had an extensive engagement programme, working with schools, universities, communities and artists.
We explored sculpture with people of all ages, connecting them with the materials and processes used in making sculpture today and showing how sculpture can be found all around us.
