There are expectations around behaviour in society. Individual, collective and institutional Conduct is often governed by convention. The rules we live by might be written or unwritten, their motives transparent or concealed, their existence public or privileged knowledge.

Conduct presents a selection of works that reconsider systems of shared behaviour. They challenge convention in order to open up new possibilities for connection between people, creating new parameters for making sense of the world we live in.

Conduct forms part of a wider piece of work being undertaken around our relationship with Lancaster and will provide a context for a series of conversations about working with the city in the future.
