This informal workshop led by curators Holly O’Brien and Rachael Ryder will build on their residency at Studio Pavilion exploring projection and moving image as methods for community engagement, self-reflexivity and storytelling.
In this workshop, we will collect stories and objects to collectively produce visual, mixed media responses to a collection of anonymous slides. We will collaboratively explore the potentials for projection, through writing, drawing and collage.
After viewing our in-house slide collection, participants will be asked to develop a visual response to a slide using mixed media (writing, images, drawing). The workshop will act as a test site of collaboration between workshop leaders and participants responding to reading and research which informs the theoretical basis of HO.RR.
The workshop will take place from 2pm to 4pm on 14 August. The workshop is free and all are welcome but registration is essential. Please register via eventbrite
Participants are asked to bring along an object or a photograph that reminds them of home.
Studio Pavilion is located at street-level with step-free access. A disabled toilet is available in the second studio across the courtyard. If you have any other access needs or have any questions about the event, don’t hesitate to get in touch and we will do our best to accommodate: email@example.com
Holly Rose O’Brien is a freelance curator and researcher based in Glasgow.

Rachael Ryder (b.1994) is a visual artist and curator from Dublin. Her practice is socially-engaged, specifically centring around community engagement via lens-based media.

This event is part of HO.RR (est 2021) is the collaborative practice of curators Holly O’Brien and Rachael Ryder, based in Glasgow. HO.RR seeks to bring engaging and accessible moving image initiatives to communities in Glasgow. These moving image initiatives take form in screening events, film workshops, performance-based workshops, community-led engagement, and panel talks. Their residency at Studio Pavilion aims to be a critical space to develop a future programme and to carry out HO.RR’s collaborative, community-embedded practice on a public-facing stage.
