Welcome to the archive website of the Centre for Socially Applied Arts (CSAA). The CSAA was a programme of exhibitions, events and labs across Bradford, UK led by artist and curator Andy Abbott between 2015 and 2018. The programme was delivered as part of his role as Producer Music and Visual Arts at University of Bradford with support from Arts Council England.
The CSAA used Gallery II at University of Bradford as a hub to explore and develop research-based, interdisciplinary, socially-engaged creative practice in the context of a technology-focused University in a postindustrial, internationally-connected city in the North of England. Learn more about the programme in this discussion between Andy Abbott and art writer Lara Eggleton and by exploring the site.
