Creative workshop for practitioners
Date: 19th November 2016
11am – 4pm
This is a professional development opportunity for practitioners and producers involved in making work and designing activities for community involvement.
In this creative and practical workshop, David Chambers will lead participants in exploring and developing innovative ideas to reflect and reveal embedded local knowledge within a particular place. We will share techniques to uncover unique spatial and cultural histories and the desires of the people who live and work there.
The collaborative and narrative-based processes utilised by Aberrant Architecture will be explored and discussed, alongside a surprising and colourful survey of historic participatory processes. Such strategies will be collectively reappraised from a realistic contemporary perspective. Considering day-to-day issues for communities and for practitioners, participants will identify and test what we can learn from these historic case studies and evolving methodologies.
To find out more about the work of Aberrant Architecture, please visit www.aberrantarchitecture.com
The workshop will be participatory and is designed to offer practitioners time and space and stimulus to explore ideas and share experiences with peers.
