Symposium : Interweaving - Future Trends in Making
From: 26/09/2012 To: 26/09/2012 10:00 - 17:00
Location: Dovecot Studios, 10 Infirmary Street, Edinburgh EH1 1LT
Interweaving – Future Trends in Making is Dovecot’s Symposium for makers, doers and thinkers to come together to discuss and develop new practice and thinking.
The world of craft and making has been going through all manner of change and profile in these last couple of years. The quality of work, breadth of engagement and cross-artform collaborations have brought the importance of making to the fore of contemporary artistic practice.
At Dovecot, as we celebrate our centenary exhibition Weaving the Century, we are reminded of the innovation in our world that happens through the collaboration between artist/designer, weaver and commissioner – a particular kind of thinking through making.
We are thrilled to be hosting this symposium in collaboration with V&A at Dundee to think to the future of our work and those of others whose practice might inform this, and hopefully yours.
We have brought together speakers and contributors who have been practicing, thinking, curating and making across disciplines, within collaborations and developing new work. We look forward to seeing you on 26th September.
Speakers will include
Philip Long - Director V & A at Dundee
Deirdre Nelson – Textiles Artist
Ruth Little – Dramaturg and Writer
Cat Rossi – Context Lecturer, Design School, Edinburgh College of Art/University of Edinburgh
Grainne Rice – Dovecot, Project Manager, Weaving the Century and curator
Alison Proctor - Executive and Programme Manager Siobhan Davies Dance Company
and Julie Brook – Visual Artist
More speakers to be announced shortly
