On our third ICE Immersion workshop, participants created a group of characters to express ideas regarding collectivity.
Our third ICE Immersion series was conducted by writer and professor Eva-Lynn Jagoe and Public Studio artists and founders: filmmaker Elle Flanders and architect Tamira Sawatzky.
“Art and Collectivity" was a multidisciplinary workshop that seeks to engage in artistic praxis around questions of social justice, environment, and political ideologies. Visual artists, activists, writers, city dwellers, and social media users are all invited to participate in this 3-day workshop in which we will share our ideas and practices of living in this moment and this landscape.
How can we rethink our own capacities, not as individuals, but as potential members of a collectivity, to create, contribute, and collaborate with each other? Participants will draw from their particular areas of expertise or interest to contribute to the group, but will also be pushed to think beyond their own disciplinary boundaries. This workshop is not about individual self-expression, but about solidarity, about collective power and collective artistic expression.
Eva-Lynn Jagoe and Victoria McKenzie presented Spooning piece during our inaugural ICE Immersion Series, Art & Orthopaedics. Spooning piece is part of Ten Thousand Arms for Bellatin, a collective publication that includes the work of more than 50 artists around the world.
