John Conway, Director of Other People’s Practices
John is the director and curator of Other People’s Practices, which is part of a larger body work that John has been researching in the field of forensic mental health care since 2017.
John is a visual artist and cultural producer who works extensively in collaborative community and community arts and health settings. His practice seeks to investigate the role and capacity of visual art, and the artist, in non-traditional settings. These enquiries take place through collaborative projects that engage target participants in dialogue around the potential and value of visual arts in relation to their specific set of circumstances.
His practice seeks to equip target communities with the necessary skills and guidance to devise and produce artwork based on their collective findings, and supports participants to critique the context and means of production. John also produces solo work based on his research and responses to scenarios encountered through his working processes.
