T-O-G-E-T-H-E-R: building unity through art

12.09.2020 at 12

Published at:27.08.2020

On Saturday 12 September at 12 noon you are invited to a workshop in English. All places now taken, thank you.

How can we cultivate unity through art? What are ways that art can bridge cultural differences and find common ground? How do we visualise togetherness in a collaborative artwork?

This workshop explores the relationship between art making and community building through identifying and visualising universal values through a collaborative art piece. A combination of communal discussion and analysis of themes related to togetherness, unity, and solidarity, as well as art making practices related to text and visual imagery, this project aims to facilitate meaningful connections – despite cultural differences and different backgrounds and experiences – through the common language of art. Following our discussion of universal values, we will democratically select a word / words to represent our message of unity through art. We will delegate their individual letters or parts to be uniquely designed to each represent a single cohesive, collaborative message that will be exhibited as an outdoor installation, in the courtyard in front of the library.

The workshop will be led by Joanna Pottle – an American visual artist, researcher, educator, and recent US Fulbright alumna residing in Krakow and collaborating with MOCAK.

Pre-booking required at edukacja@mocak.pl or (+ 48) 12 263 40 36 (Tuesday – Saturday 11 am – 7 pm). The event will be held in English in a small group (up to 12 people) and according to MOCAK Visitors’ Guidelines. Entry: 2 PLN.

Please note that this workshop is split into two 1-hour sessions with a short lunch break.

The event takes place as part of the project Twentieth / Twenty First Century: History, Art, Education.
