About

Artquest and DACS present Spaced Out - a one-day conference that looks at the changing use of artists’ space in a wider urban context: from new uses for traditional studio spaces, the impact of rising domestic space costs, innovative business space use and how virtual spaces are used to exhibit, make and sell work.

The conference will explore the political and economic currents that are changing available spaces, and imagine the impact on future practice, culture and society.

The conference is for delegates from across the arts, design, architecture, development, education and other creative and policy-driven fields.
