Art as Education / Education as Art: Inhabiting Practice

Workshop May 7-8th 2018

Directed by Tormod W. Anundsen and Helene Illeris, University of Agder, Norway.

Hosted by Shift/Work at Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop 

This workshop is supported by ERASMUS+Art & Learning (School of Art, Edinburgh College of Art), MASTKUN UiA, and Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop 

What is Art as Education / Education as Art?

As part of their overarching project: Art as Education / Education as Art, Illeris & Anundsen invite you to participate in an explorative workshop that focuses on 'inhabiting' art practices as a form of teaching. The aim is to explore how lived inquiry may at the same time be a form of art practice, everyday practice and education practice.

Through the workshop you will explore possible ways of ‘inhabiting' landscapes, places, practices, collectivities, perspectives….

Who can participate?

The workshop is free and is open to anyone interested in art and/or education.

Please sign up here on Eventbrite so that we can pre-prepare the groups in advance of the workshop and to ensure that we have enough room in the studio. 

There will be a break for lunch on both days. Tea & Coffee will be be provided. Please bring a packed lunch.

Preparation:

Please read the texts listed in the schedule before the workshop. The reading will be emailed to you once you register.

SHIFT/WORK //// Edinburgh Sculpture Workshop //// 25 Hawthornvale, Newhaven, Edinburgh, EH6 4JT +44 (0) 131 551 4490 www.shift-work.org.uk

Shift/Work reconfigures workshop-based approaches to artistic learning that are theoretically informed, practical and participatory. Shift/Work has established a collective ontology for art practice though an autotelic paragogy in which participants design, playtest and reflect upon their learning processes. Key to this is an open engagement with practice (work) as a means of both generating and transferring new knowledge (shift). This experiential knowledge facilitates new practices and open educational resources for artists and educators to adapt and implement.
