Public Engagement with Research

As well as the year round delivery of public engagement with arts, culture and heritage, Lakeside seeks to exchange inspirational ideas and knowledge generated through research with our audiences, visitors and communities.

In partnership with the Institute of Policy and Engagement, we support academics to connect with local people through public lectures, festivals and events.

Organised collaboratively by Arts Council Collection and Lakeside Arts, this informal and engaging day of presentations and discussion sheds light on the important contributions made by women to the field of modern and contemporary British sculpture. It brings together a panel of leading artists, curators and scholars who will share their latest research and thinking with the opportunity to reflect on individual practices, collective breakthroughs and areas ripe for further investigation.
