      FORWARD conversation series

      Deepen your understanding of the innovative work being done in the public art field. Designed for anyone who wants to keep their pulse on the intersection of arts, culture, place and equity, this series began with the vision of taking expertise off the pages of Public Art Review and bringing it to you direct from leading practitioners.

      We now invite you to connect with FORWARD, our new digital publication and conversation series highlighting how artists are partnering with cities, institutions and communities to courageously tackle the vital issues of our time.

      From the decolonization of public art, to artists addressing public health challenges, to a more just future of mobility and infrastructure, join us for these deep conversations around creative problem solving in public life.
