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.

Access information:
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: hollyobrienarts@gmail.com

Holly Rose O’Brien is a freelance curator and researcher based in Glasgow. With a background in literature, her practice focuses on alternative modes of storytelling, artists’ writing practice, the potential of language, and fiction as a vehicle for uncovering buried histories and archives. Her research explores archives, ephemeral public art and lens-based media as tools for a sustainable socially engaged practice.
