Creative Research Skills WorkshopYoung People, Workshop Sat 30 Nov, 3pm–7pm
Open to all 15-25 year olds
‘You are an explorer. Your mission is to document and observe the world around you as if you’ve never seen it before. Take notes. Collect things you find on your travels. Document your findings. Notice patterns. Copy. Trace. Focus on one thing at a time. Record what you are drawn to.’
- Keri Smith: How to be an Explorer in the World (2008)
Paying attention to the world around you is at the centre of what many artists and researchers do. In this workshop we will explore the galleries and ourselves using creative methods such as; drawing, writing, exploring objects and various sensory experiences. The initial notes and sketches will be developed into artworks using different materials and techniques.
This session will be a relaxed and playful opportunity to experiment with creative techniques for a research-based practice. No prior knowledge or skills are needed.
1525 Collective (formerly known as Collabor8) is a group of young people that meet up regularly at Nottingham Contemporary. They shape and help run programmes of events, courses and projects, developing useful skills along the way. Their ambition is to connect with people across the city, develop new and exciting ways of working together, and to take on the issues that matter to young people.
We want to hear from you. As part of the group you can develop your own creative practice and knowledge of the arts sector, and build your collaborative and leadership skills and experiences.
