SPAN: Social Practices Art Network

The Social Practices Art Network (SPAN) is a site created by Los Angeles-based artist Jules Rochielle to be an online resource and archive for individuals, organizations, community groups and institutions that are interested in new genre arts forms and social practices. It is meant to serve as a platform for a variety of practices and represents relationships, conversations and dialogue that happen offline as well as online. 

While at BRACJules Rochielle and (SPAN) will offer a series of site-specific "Listening Sessions" allowing her to tune the archive into the rich cultural community history of the Bronx by creating of a set of interviews with socially engaged Bronx artists. 

These "Bronx Listening Sessions" will allow an expanded audience to look deeply in on the history and creative happenings of the South Bronx, a neighborhood that has a deep roots and history in collective artistic practice and socially engaged artwork.

 
Sign up online for a "Listening Session" with Jules Rochielle when she will be present at BRAC from December 13, 2011 to January 1, 2011 to build a community archive with you. Or you can set up an interview via Skype and phone—just sign up  online.
