Join us for free workshops this Spring/Summer as part of Headland with artists Youngsook Choi and Kirsti Davies of artist collective RARA. 

See below for more details.

Thursdays 7 June, 14 June and 21 June 2018
Free, suitable for ages 15+

In response to Headland project and exhibition, exploring the psycho-geographical values of local memories, participants are invited to take part in a short series of artist-led talks designed to define creative practices in the context of psycho-geography; the effect of a geographical location on the emotions and behaviour of individuals.

Psycho-geography and Arts Practice

7 June

The first session will look into the key concepts of psycho-geographical arts practice including embodiment and political-poetry, with a tour of themes arising in Headland.

Map Making

14 June

Maps can be curious and subjective, practical, logical and drawn to scales from micro to macro; from individual thoughts to endless expanding galaxies. In this session participants will look at building a multidimensional map and picture of local communities through a series of observational and research based techniques, which can be applied to your own art practice and audience engagement.

Site-reading Performance

21 June

Focusing on embodiment, a key concept in psycho-geographical practices, participants will learn and perform body movement techniques, applying them to readings interpreting spaces and places.
