Chrissie Tiller

Chrissie is a writer, thinker, teacher and advisor with an extensive history of working through collaborative and social practice: particularly in periods of social, political and economic change and cross-cultural contexts. This has included initiating major artists' trainings and cultural networks across the EU, ex-Soviet countries, Central and South-East Europe and Japan.

For 12 years she was Director of the MA in Participatory and Community Arts at Goldsmiths alongside her roles as external expert on arts, culture and participation for the European Commission, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Goethe Instituut and a number of other EU funders and programmes.  

She has worked closely with a number of Creative People and Places programmes as associate, advisor and critical friend as well as heading up the Northern Faculty of Social Arts practice. Her recent think piece Power Up for Creative People and Places which looks at the impact of power, privilege, cultural capital, ethics and politics within arts and culture will form the starting point for one of the conference plenary sessions.
