The first Community Arts workshop for the Artist in Residence program here at Willsmere Estate will take place at the Community Room on Saturday the 15th of February from 1-4pm.
This workshop will coincide with World Community Arts Day – a global event which takes place each year in February.
I will be asking the community to collaborate with me, to produce an impression of a map of the estate.
I will have created the beginnings of works on paper before the workshop commences, and will offer it to those that take part. They can then select an area located on a map provided of the estate, or find a spot that is important to them, and begin adding to the artwork. This can be done over the workshop duration, or time can be spent over a period of days. How the work is approached is entirely up to the individual, and will further depict and contribute to a visual interpretation of the essence of community life, both personally and collectively.
All the works will then be arranged together as a large scale collage, forming a map.
This collaborative image will feature in the final exhibition of works for the residency program.
Materials will be provided on the day.
