Join Articulture and others across Wales this Autumn to develop your skills and understanding of artistic creation in the public space with FAI-AR’s free online course ‘Create in Public Space’ starting Monday 2 November 2020.
What is public space? Why do artists choose to work in these unconventional places? How do they use these spaces around the world? What kinds of legislation and technical characteristics do professionals have to take into account?
Open to anyone who is interested in creating and learning more about art in public space, ‘Create in Public Space’ is created by FAI-AR, Europe’s sole higher education training programme on art in public space, in collaboration with the Europe-wide IN SITU platform and the French national organisation Artcena.
The course is packed with tools and inspiration to help you understand and play a role in artistic creation in public space. Learn about different artworks designed for public space, the way they interact with their locations, and the specific features of writing and engaging audiences in this context.
The course is split into four modules, each requiring approximately 3 hours of independent study each week. Complementing this study is the invitation to meet as a group between modules to discuss learning.
Study schedule for Autumn 2020 is as follows –
- Mon 2 Nov – 11.30am – 1pm – First group meeting – Introductions
