Hello Camberwell take 1
(Workshop organized by me and Paul)
Hello Camberwell - Visual Spaces Workshop Series
22nd - 24th March
Wilson Road College Car Park / Lecture Theatre / MA Graphic Design Studio
Three days of workshops curated by MA Graphic Design open to all students and staff interested in sharing skills and ideas.
Following on from the ongoing Visual Voices Lecture Series, in which Jonathan Barnbrook and Brave New Alps have described their own approaches to design that takes a political and engaged stance, we are planning a series of workshops that are intended to consider our own micro-community of the college, and its place in a wider context.
We want to encourage interaction across different courses and levels, so all contributions and suggestions for these three days are warmly welcomed.
22nd March - The garden as a three dimensional page
(and BBQ lunch)
10am - 5pm
The college is making plans to turn some of the car park at Wilson Road into a garden - this is a project that will happen over a long period of time - but the first stage is to inhabit the space.
The intention of the Hello Camberwell project is to take the first step towards transforming this space by initiating some activity, we will be building highly visible sculptural typography to be seen from both the school and the street.
Using any found objects, junk and detrius, we will collaborate to develop a three dimensional visual language, including words and images that will make the first step in transforming the car park into an engaging environment.
The process will be captured as a film/stop motion animation that will be shown as part of the last day of the workshop.
Bring what you can -
