Creative Concepts: an Interactive Talk on Making

Classes, Lessons, Workshops and Talks

3 Dec 2020 Once Only Event

Canberra artist, poet, and art theorist Dr Sarah Rice presents an interactive talk about what concepts motivate and activate art creation. How can concepts drawn from philosophy, literature and creative writing, for example, inspire a creative practice in the visual arts? What compels people to make? Why are we drawn to certain tools, materials and textures? What is the heart of the matter and the matters of the heart?

This talk is suitable for artists, craftspeople, designers, and hobbyists at any stage of their practice, and anyone interested in thinking about how artists think with their hands. It would suit anyone wanting to get inspired by mess and materials, process and practice, tools and techniques, creation and compulsion, making and madness.
