Events and networking

Engage Scotland programmes workshops, training seminars and talks supporting those working in learning and engagement in visual arts venues in Scotland. Several events, including networking and training meetings, are held each year across Scotland reflecting themes and concerns within the sector.


In conversation: whiteness, representation & visibility, in partnership with the Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh

Thursday 2nd May, 2019 at 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue: Dovecot Studios, Edinburgh

A day of conversations and workshops seeking to highlight and address whiteness within arts institutions in Scotland. Developed by Natasha Ruwona and Claricia Parinussa Kruithof, the day is presented in collaboration with Engage Scotland and the Fruitmarket Gallery and involves contributions from and conversations between a range of speakers and artists, aiming to establish intersectional approaches to take forward together.
This event is part of the Fruitmarket Gallery’s Connecting Communities strand, creative projects and events which broaden their work with a diverse range of communities. The exhibitions provide a framework in which to ask questions and address issues around identity and equality, community cohesion and mutual understanding between our changing and diverse communities.
