Join in the conversation between critics and art writers as they discuss the current landscape of arts writing, looking at the challenges and opportunities that come from writing when working within small artistic spaces and communities. The panellists will discuss three pressure points: when the critic is also involved in making works within the same scene or has close working relationships with artists they may review; the ethics and opportunities that arise when productions or festivals employ "embedded" critics or bloggers to write; and the pressure to be positive, particularly in arts scenes that are under supported.
