FORGE 2016 WORKSHOP SERIES!
FORGE connections. FUEL your practice. RESHAPE your creative process.
Returning this fall, FORGE is AKIN Project's creative incubator for practicing artists and designers focused on both creative and professional development. Alongside a series of professional development workshops, our creative sessions will allow participants to learn and share skills, discuss, debate, bust creative ruts, stretch their abilities, brainstorm with peers and be challenged to step outside of their practice.
Workshops can be thematic in nature, and should provide an opportunity for advanced skill building with a strong emphasis on collaboration and knowledge transfer among members of AKIN's community. Past workshops have included everything from tote bag making to video game design to movement based wall drawing, from scientific art experiments to body awareness workshops.
Workshops should focus on exploring unique and unconventional processes or modes of expression. Take us places we've never been before!
Workshops will be a one time, 3 hour session, and facilitators will be paid a CARFAC recommended fee of $289. Depending on the nature of the workshop, material costs may be covered by AKIN.
Expression of Interest should include:
+ A brief bio of yourself and your practice, and any relevant professional experience
+ Documentation of your work and/or any related links to your work online,
+ A short summary (one page max) of the workshop(s) you'd like to conduct,
+ Ideal number of participants, required materials or space, the best time of year to hold the workshop, and any other technical or safety considerations that may apply.
We look forward to hearing from you!
