What to Expect

In this workshop a series of exercises will investigate the breadth and necessity of participatory art. Ida will begin with a short lecture explaining the different types of participatory art styles, before taking students through exercises to out that into practice. Through the workshop, the social, economic and political ideas of participating people will be explored, power relationships as well as safety in practice. Students will benefit from learning take-home studio process they can use again and again in the future to design, create and produce incredibly meaningful and moving works of participatory art in their communities.

Who is it for?

Artists, people working with communities, social workers, event planners who want to engage in deeply meaningful and creative ways.

Although Ida comes to participatory art from a performance background, her experience in participatory sculpture and painting in the expanded field makes this an essential workshop for any artist working in any medium. This workshop will broaden your ideas about how to consider the body in relation to your work and how that can affect the viewers experience of your conceptual ideas and material output.

What to bring

Participants are asked to bring a journal and pen, re-fillable water bottle and are encouraged to bring a keep cup for coffee. There is a fridge available to store lunch, or you can walk down to the queen street cafe precinct (3 min walk).
