Proceedings from WESTAF’s 17th cultural policy symposium, The Future History of Public Art, are now available online. This gathering of public art practitioners and allied professionals convened in Honolulu, Hawai’i on November 5-7, 2017. The event was organized by WESTAF in collaboration with Forecast Public Art and the Hawai’i State Foundation on Culture and the Arts.
The symposium provided a significant platform for high-level discourse to explore existing challenges alongside emerging strategies for the successful growth of the public art field. Symposium attendees traveled from six countries to take part in the convening, including New Zealand, Australia, Canada, the United States, Brazil, and Argentina. This convening was organized as a way to reflect on the challenges public art practitioners face and propose ways in which the field can develop to provide a stronger infrastructure in support of the advancement of the field as a whole.
