Once or twice a year we organise a symposium in partnership with an art school, museum, or gallery to launch or begin a conversation around the topic of our next publication.

With each symposium we invite contributors to the book to speak, and we facilitate discussion amongst our invited audience of art staff and students from school to HE level, and staff from arts organisations, research and funding councils, museums, and galleries. In this section you can find an archive of photos, videos, and feedback from our previous events as well as details of the book it launched.  In the lead up to each event we’ll also post details of forthcoming symposia and how you can go about booking these.

How we partner with institutions

From 2015 we will work with 2 or 3 institutions per year to produce a book and hold related symposia. If you are interested in supporting a Q-Art publication, hosting a symposium at your institution, or finding out more then please get in touch with [email protected]
