What are the precursors to transformative moments within socially engaged arts practice?

I write as a participant, as an artist and as a member of the local community. By adopting artistic research methods, and specifically, by making work in the place where I live, which could be considered a form of auto-ethnographic artistic research, the research analyses social artistic processes from the perspective of the artist, adding to debates around what social arts practice is, and what its limits are in its original social context and within the gallery and documentary systems of dissemination.

'Believe me, I remain...': Meaning and Materiality in the Mary Greg Collections at Manchester Art Gallery

As a museum curator turned researcher, I am interested in the histories and uses of art museum collections, with particular respect to decorative art and craft. My PhD research considers the changing values, status and meaning of 'everyday' objects within the art museum, through an investigation of the Mary Greg Collections at Manchester Art Gallery.
