This hybrid event is part-workshop, part-conference, part-crit session, part-master class, part-experiment, part-chance composition. The event is founded on the following questions: How do ideas take form? How does one embark on the process of extracting, editing and distilling an idea into a presentable format? These types of questions are found in all disciplines.
In the third edition of this serial event, we seek to engage transdisciplinary debates and studies of the geologic as source of explanation, motivation, and inspiration for understanding and responding to conditions of the present moment. Recent natural and human-made events triggered by or triggering the geologic have made volatile earth forces perceptible and relevant with new levels of intensity. How can the arts, sciences, and humanities contribute to a critical awareness and understanding of these transformations?
This intensive two day event will be led by the six invited mentors and feature presentations by graduate students, recent alumni, artists, and scholars selected from the submissions we received.
This event is connected to the exhibition The pen moves across the earth... held concurrently at the Blackwood Gallery from September 16 to November 29, 2015.
FEE: $40 for both days
Includes lunch and transport from downtown Toronto
