MAKE 2021 OBJECTS/PERFORMANCE

LOCATION: Online Symposium
Date: Sat 6th Mar
            10:00am - 5:00pm
MAKE 2021 OBJECTS/PERFORMANCE

MAKE 2021 explores the materiality of performance, the role of objects in theatre, matter in movement.   

 

MAKE 2021 is our eighth Symposium designed to highlight contemporary issues concerning making and is hosted by Crawford College’s Contemporary Applied Arts Degree, which has at its heart a commitment to hands-on engagement with material as a path to concept, a kind of thinking through making,?through dialogue with a material. We stress experimentation and innovation within an interdisciplinary?offering of Ceramics, Glass, and Textiles, addressing current debate in the culture of the object and in material culture, all within the context of historic and contemporary fine and applied art.
