Organised by g39/ Warp and Chapter, Cardiff, this will be the eighth in a series of symposium events aimed at discussing the key issues of making and exhibiting contemporary art in Wales.
TCIH: Self-publishing looks at the various methods and models of self-publishing that artists use. With more artists publishing books and catalogues, the event will cover topics such as: the practicalities of book production, distribution models and how the making of books can stand as an arts practice in its own right.
The day will begin with presentations from each of the speakers followed by a panel discussion. This will then lead into break-out groups with an opportunity for the participants to talk in more detail with the speakers.
Confirmed speakers include:
• Louise O’Hare, Publish and be Damned (www.publishandbedamned.org)
• Tom Benson, Artist (www.tombenson.net)
• Arnaud Desjardin, The Everyday Press (www.theeverydaypress.net)
There are a maximum of 30 spaces for each symposium with tickets allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
Tickets are subsidised and cost £15, this will include light refreshments.
