‘Systematic’ School Holiday Workshop – Wednesday 19 January

‘Systematic’ School Holiday Workshop

This January holiday program offers young people the opportunity to explore ideas in a series of collaborative, multi-art form workshops responding to the exhibition, Systematic.

Two different workshops [each offered at two different times] will lead participants through creative exercises that interpret different forms of systems, from pattern and rhythm to environmental and technological/artificial systems, exploring questions of connectivity, organisation and inter-relatedness.

Systematic workshop series is a creative aimed at providing young artists aged 6/8 and over with opportunities and spaces for exploration, collaboration and endless possibilities for play. The workshops are suitable for beginners through to those with more experience.
