    The University of Liverpool in collaboration with the Bluecoat Arts Centre, invites you to “Galleries of Inquiry: Philosophy’s contribution to curating, learning and public engagement practices of todays art wold”, a one day workshop (10.00-16.00)  in celebration of International Philosophy Day.
    Drawing its impetus from the recently completed pioneering Philosopher-in-Residence programme at Liverpool’s Bluecoat (2013-15), the event brings together curators, artists, philosophers and arts professionals to investigate new frameworks for systematically deploying philosophy for the benefit of the public, artists and art institutions.
    The event is part of the British Society of Aethetics Philosophy in the Gallery Series, and is supported by the BSA, the AHRC, the Bluecoat Arts Centre, and the Unversity of Liverpool.
