Revaluing the Life Model in Art Practice has been generously funded by the British Society of Aesthetics (BSA). BSA promotes the study, research and discussion of the fine arts and related types of experience from a philosophical, psychological, sociological, historical, critical and educational standpoint.

The Symposium is hosted by the Aesthetics Research Centre (ARC). ARC brings together faculty and postgraduate students from four different departments and three different schools and is characterised by a strong interdisciplinary ethos.
