*More information and abstracts available on presenters page

13.35 – 14.35

A) Linda Duvall  – Bhajis and Gossip

60 mins

Linda invites 10 participants to lunch. During this session  time you will be introduced to a fictionalized version of an event that happened near my home in rural Saskatchewan and that has literally torn the community apart. It involves a tragic event, complicated accusations of racism, freedom of speech vs. offensive online comments, and much more.

Each person at the table will be given a slip of paper that will contain a brief description of the role that they will occupy during the lunch. They will gradually expand on their assigned roles as they see fit. Some people will also act as observers to give feedback and ask questions, or to provide related ‘expert’ voices.

 

B) Garrett Lynch  On audience attitude in participative and interactive forms

60 mins

Building on his presentation Garrett Lynch invites 10 participants to enter into  an open  discussion about  audience attitude in participative and interactive forms. He is particularly interested in engaging those who have a vested interest in participation and interaction in practice and have  first-hand experience of audience attitudes. He will use the following questions as a starting point:

  • What are practitioners’ experiences of audience attitudes, which are developing an increased understanding of participation and interaction in art?
  • What strategies are practitioners employing as a result?
  • How are practitioners and public art venues developing methods of exhibiting art that supports participative and interactive forms?

 

Lunchtime Activities and Workshops

C) Arlene Tucker and Anastasia Artemeva –  Dear You: communicating through artwork exchange.

Arlene Tucker and Anastasia Artemeva invite you to participate in a workshop-based collaborative art installation, which connects participants through active participatory design from the semiotic perspective.

D) Sarah Green –  Narrative threads or threads of narrative

20 min sessions for groups of 5

Sarah Green invites small groups of 5 people to engage in the tactile act of weaving on a large scale temporary structure. The workshop encourages collaboration, negotiation and dialogue as participants weave between and around each other to form a woven narrative.

 

E) Zoe Petersen  –  Glazebrook Growers Exchange: Seeds for Words

15 min session for groups of 1-3

Zoe invites you to participate in her PhD project and exchange words for seeds at her stall situated in the foyer of the New Art Exchange. The seeds have been collected by the Glazebrook Growers gardening group, in London, at the end of the 2016 growing season. Messages will be read to the Growers back on our estate at an event in early 2017, helping to sow ideas for the 2017 season of activities and to reflect on the project.
