Workshop 2

When: Wednesday 1st March, 2-5PM

Where: Goldsmiths CCA Resident’s Space for the 2nd part in our ‘Reimagining Crits’ workshop series. 

In this session we will be expanding on thoughts that emerged from conversations in our first workshop – to develop some plans, ideas and practical guidelines on how to approach crits through an anti-racist, non-hierarchical and collective lens.

All are welcome – whether you have been to an APR session before or not – across all undergraduate and postgraduate courses at Goldsmiths, Kingston, Manchester & Middlesex.

APR invites students, staff and alumni to join us in reimagining the ‘crit’ through an anti-racist and collective lens. How can we envision these models differently by challenging the individualist and singular positioning that crits often assume? What could a non-hierarchical and caring crit look like? How can we make conversations about art more open and accessible to those who are marginalised by the conventional forms these often take within art education? 

Facilitated by APR members, we will use this workshop to collectively decide how to approach the upcoming ‘alternative crit’ sessions and what new possibilities for feedback and sharing about practice are opened up. We will construct proposals for how presenting, facilitating, observing and participating in crits can be more nurturing and inclusive. We encourage students to take an active role in discussing the place of ‘critique’ in developing their practices, and will work together to imagine ways of embedding anti-racist approaches within these key aspects of art and practice-based learning. 

The final workshop in this series will be taking place on 15th March at Goldsmiths CCA.
