EVENT – 3rd open 'Talking about art/collaborative crit development' meeting

9th floor Boardroom, University of the Arts London, 272 High Holborn, London, WC1V 7EY
16 May 2012 (5.00 - 6.30pm)

This is the third open meeting for the project; you are welcome to participate even if you were not able to attend the first 2 meetings.

The aim of having these meetings is to pool expertise and good practice when it comes to facilitating the process of talking about, reading and describing art – in the crit, gallery or studio context – especially in order to help each person to participate fully and confidently in a crit. The project team aim to pull in expertise from university and gallery educators around the UK and the end goal is to produce a set of dynamic and accessible learning resources that can communicate such techniques and be shared, accredited, distributed, hosted and used by all (students, graduates, staff, those without an art background or looking for a ‘way in’).

Please see more information on the project:

Since the last meeting the Higher Education Academy (HEA) has offered funding to produce a video resource for the project, which can be shared across websites and platforms. This will be discussed in more detail on the 16th but they feel the structure for the videos should inform the next meeting agenda:
  • Why do we have crits?
  • Why are they important?
  • What are the different types of crits and what are their advantages and drawbacks?
If you would like to attend the meeting or for more information, please contact Sarah Rowles director@q-artlondon.com or Siobhan Clay s.clay@arts.ac.uk
