How to position your practice conceptually and contextually. This workshop with MA Fine Art Subject Leader Desmond Brett will challenge participants to rethink the diagram as a way of articulating your work, your methodologies and the contextual field you are operating. It is also intended as a challenge to think more laterally around your particular line of creative enquiry.
Adapting to Survive
Thursday 31 March | 5pm (BST)
Join Akin Akinsiku, BAFTA award-winning Director and Creative Executive, for this talk about being a polymath and multi-specialist. Akin will discuss how essential the ability to adapt has been throughout his twenty years of broadcasting experience. This inspiring talk will provide an opportunity for participants to consider how postgraduate study can take their own creative practice in a new direction.
The Manifesto – Making with Intention
Thursday 7 April | 5pm (BST)
The artist’s manifesto as a declaration of intent, and a roadmap through the unknown. What is a manifesto, and how can you bring yours to life? Find out with MA Fashion graduate Emily Cannell and MA Textile Design graduate Ian Brownlie.
Thursday 28 April | 5pm (BST)
Anna Dumitriu will discuss the concepts and processes behind her artworks which explore infectious diseases, synthetic biology and robotics. Equally at home in both the laboratory and the art studio, Dumitriu is frequently inspired by the history behind research, situating contemporary issues within cultural contexts, weaving narratives and drawing threads across time.
