VAI Webinar | The Ethical Artist – Creating, Challenging, Meaningful work in a Changing World (19 January)

Event: The Ethical Artist – Creating, Challenging, Meaningful work in a Changing World

Format: Webinar (Online via zoom)

Date: Wednesday 19th January, 2022

Time: 11am (1.5 hr webinar)

Description:

This event will highlight best practice considerations and techniques for visual artists who wish to reduce their environmental impacts, use materials with more awareness, and create art that challenges our ecological and societal perspective. Emerging and mid-level visual artists will gain key insights on the on the use of materials, of exhibiting work, travel, the power of art to emotionally connect us, and our proportional responsibility.

This interactive webinar will be led by environmentalist John Thorne who has been Glasgow School of Art’s Sustainability Coordinator since 2013: Working with designers, architects and artists his work seeks to broaden and deepen student experience, exploring how practice can connect us to ourselves and each other and promote social justice. It asks how can we emotionally support nature through art, and better engage people with environmental & ethical issues like climate change and biodiversity loss.

Through knowledge exchange, discussion and examples we will ask: Just how can artists help create less-impactful art, that meaningfully challenges us to create a more positive future?

Following on from this webinar, Sligo based visual artists can avail of 1 of 8 twenty minute 1-2-1 clinics with John Thorne.

Online: Peer Critique (South Dublin County Council based Artists only) (13-20 January)

What does a peer critique session look like?

Having somebody to talk to; removing the sense of being in it on your own; getting constructive advice and feedback that goes beyond friends telling you “It’s great” helps you to push your work further. VAI Peer Reviews are designed to do just that! To allow you to talk with a wider audience in a friendly atmosphere, have a good conversation about it, and gain advice from leading curators/artists from around the world.

What can I expect?

This two-part peer critique will take place on two Thursdays with four artists presenting in each session. Across the two sessions, eight artists in total will share their work with the rest of the group. Participants would need to be available for both sessions to allow for presentation and critique. This is a platform for artists to receive feedback and the chance to generate a discussion around your work.

Session one: Thursday 13th January, 10am-12:15pm

Session two: Thursday 20th January, 10am-12:00pm

This event will be facilitated by Laura McCafferty, Public Programmes Curator at CCA Derry~Londonderry and is for South Dublin County Council based visual artists only.
