Training Opportunity – participation, engagement and responsiveness
On Friday 1st and 8th July, Friction are offering a small group of artists and performers the opportunity to benefit from their extensive experience in developing participatory approaches to making art in the world. If you are someone who is interested in developing their approach to creating engaging artwork, aimed at the widest audience, then this is not to be missed.
Through participating in a series of workshop techniques, honed by Friction through their 30-year history, you will work together to create art ‘sketches’ in the public realm, while developing your own skills in artmaking.
Friction’s lead artists, Lee Griffiths and Sandra Hall have been making artworks and interventions locally and internationally for over 30 years. They have worked and trained with a huge range of other artists and performers, including Guillermo Gomez-Pena, Augusto Boal, Jonathan Kay, and Phillipe Gaulier, among others. Standing on the shoulders of these giants has enabled them to develop their own take on how to apply methodologies they’ve learned to working in public spaces to create new artworks, interventions and performances.
