Drawbridge - Drawing Research Hub Launch

Drawbridge - Drawing Research Hub based at MTU Crawford College of Art & Design proudly welcomes you to our Launch Event on Thursday 18th November 2021 from 2pm-4.30pm.

Drawbridge - the first research hub of its kind to be established within the MTU Crawford College of Art & Design campus - was founded by Dr Helen Farrell and Dr Lucy Dawe-Lane to facilitate opportunities for researchers, students and artists to collaborate and exchange ideas around contemporary drawing practice. With a focus on promoting the capability of drawing to give form to thought Drawbridge are currently engaging in drawing projects and collaborations with the aim of consolidating current drawing practice and research activity within MTU. This mini-symposium offers a taste of what is to come and celebrates the launch of the Drawbridge website.

With great pleasure Drawbridge will be introducing some incredible speakers with connections to Cork and MTU to explore and celebrate the diversity of drawing research including President of MTU Professor Maggie Cusack, Visual Artist Rachel Duckhouse, Professor of Art History UEA Dr Ed Krčma, Visual Artist and TUD Fine Art Lecturer Dr Brian Fay and Crawford Fine Art Lecturer Dr Lucy Dawe-Lane.
