Artists who create socially engaged art projects often partner with institutions as a way of gaining support and funding. But these projects have specific needs that go beyond the traditional artist-institution relationship, oftentimes changing the notion of the art project as well as the institution. What does this relationship look like and how can active and effective partnerships be better envisioned for socially engaged art projects? How can the participating communities be better empowered to truly impact the practice of socially engaged art making? This panel will ask questions of different stakeholders, considering the perspectives of artists, communities, funders and institutions to form a dialogue around optimum ways of addressing and responding to each of their needs.

Presented in partnership with the French Institute Alliance Française (FIAF) and A Blade of Grass as part of FIAF's 2013 Crossing the Line festival.
