We All Draw
International Interdisciplinary Symposium
6-8th November 2015
Theme: Social and collaborative drawing practices. Sharing and reflecting on drawing and teaching practices across disciplines and cultures.
What happens when we draw?
What do we learn when we draw?
When we teach drawing what are we teaching?
The symposium will enable on-going conversations and collaborations between practitioners, researchers and educators at an international level.
Our 2012 and 2013 symposia included workshops that demonstrated innovative and experimental practices in drawing research and education, and we now bring this practical focus forward even more strongly, by including master classes from invited experts, and using visual methods for discussion and documentation. Workshops will be underpinned by cognitive analysis of what is happening when we draw, in our many and varied ways.
The workshops will be of interest to professionals, researchers and educators from arts, humanities & STEM fields.
Master classes will cover the following themes:
– Drawing Thinks: practical uses of drawing ‘as a tool for thought’.
– Drawing Talks: socially engaged practices that use collaborative drawing methods.
– Drawing Sings: performative practices that explore embodiment.
– Drawing Heals: drawing as a tool for promoting physical and mental well-being.
