  • Chrissie Tiller

    Chrissie Tiller is a passionate writer, thinker, teacher, and practitioner with a long history of working on participation, access and inter-cultural dialogue through collaborative and social arts practice: particularly in trans-national contexts and places undergoing social, economic and political change.

    This has included initiating and leading major arts and cultural networks, focused on the wider role of the arts within society, across the EU, ex-Soviet countries, Central and SouthEast Europe and Japan. For 12 years she was Director of the MA in Participatory and Community Arts at Goldsmiths alongside her work on arts, participation and social inclusion for the European Commission, Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Goethe Instituut, European Cultural Foundation, ELIA, IETM, British Council and other international funders. Her recent think piece, for Arts Council England, Power Up, examines current debates around cultural democracy and social justice in the context of privilege, cultural capital, politics, values and ethics.
