Purpose into Practice: Saad Eddine Said, New Art Exchange

Tuesday 2nd November 2021

11am–12pm

In June we launched a new series of webinars, 'Purpose into Practice', focusing on purpose and values, and how these can help shape new projects, inform changes to business models and resourcing, and remain at the heart of our work.

As we move more to talking about values and mission, we thought it was extremely important to show how they influence and determine how organisations engage with different communities—whether that be their local community, an international community, or a community of artists, or a community of interest—as well as how purpose affects how organisations operate internally with their staff, their board, their resources.

We have carefully curated the speakers of the events to include organisations and practitioners who have worked with a diverse range of communities.

Saad-Eddine Said works as Artistic Director and CEO of New Art Exchange, a ground-breaking, award-winning and internationally recognised creative space in Nottingham, dedicated to promoting excellence in culturally diverse contemporary arts through our exhibitions, events and engagement initiatives. He has previously worked as an Artistic Director as part of Up Next at the Battersea Arts Centre in London, and Director of HOME Slough.

Saad is the Co-Founder and Co-Director of the NGO Terre Sans Frontière which aims to break down cultural boundaries through art, music and film. Known for his City Take-Overs, he is a curator who initiates and builds bridges and creative partnerships between local communities, artists, activists, social entrepreneurs, innovators, cultural organisations and governmental institutions.  His work focuses on co-creating impactful and artistic takeovers that are aimed at re-thinking, re-imagining and re-shaping the structure and future of institutions and communities in towns and cities nationally and internationally. He presented his work and vision around theories of change in Europe, North America, Asia and Africa.

He is also a producer, documentary Film-maker and holds a master in Biodiversity and Environment.

His work has involved collaborations with international institutions including Tate Gallery, British Council, Cervantes, The French Embassy, The CFI and The European Cultural Foundation.

This is a free event.
