Our programme of socially-engaged practice and activities responds to women and related issues of culture, heritage, spaces, equality, social participation, and wellbeing. We’ll be presenting a comprehensive outline soon, but for now:
[DWAN] is acting as Artists & Curators in Residence on significant social engagement and co-research projects, including:
