SUSAN D'AMATO :Artist Resiencies

Bali

Bali

"Residencies for me are opportunities to immerse myself in new physical, cultural and social environments that allow me to absorb and respond creatively to all that I am in contact with. The aspects of travel, research, exploration and discovery integrates everything I love about life as an artist and seeker. There is something very special about working along side other creatives and sharing the intensity of creative process and practice. I find the balance of work, time, space and community deeply supportive, nourishing, satisfying and joyful. I am grateful for the experiences and friendships I have made through residency participation and hope to continue to explore the inner/outer world it in this way." 

Susan D'Amato's residencies have included:
Purnati Center for the Creative Arts, Bali
The David and Julia White foundation, Costa Rica
Tyrone Guthrie Center, Annaghmakerrig, Ireland
PLAYA, Oregon
Sitka Centre, Oregon
Jentel, Wyoming
The Helene Wurlitzer Foundation, New Mexico

Drawing Open and REID


On September the 2nd 2017 the group Reggio Emilia Inspired Dialogue, REID for short, came to Massey University Drawing Open space to do and learn more about Drawing as Expanded practice with Emma Febvre-Richards. This group are volunteers (head teachers and academics) who orchestrate four or five professional development events per year in Wellington for ECE teachers, inspired by the pedagogy of Reggio Emilia.

Have a look at the philosophy here:

Watch this space as we are now working towards the possibility of developing a drawing pedagogy in early childhood!
Here are some pictures of the fun we had!

Drawing Open in Europe June/July 2017


Drawing Open was lucky enough to have a wonderful trip to Europe in June!

Emma Febvre-Richards writes:

1. I visited with Huhana Smith and Corinne Sentou, Tim Ingold in Aberdeen and to discuss the possibility of Tim working with Drawing Open!
Also to workshop with Tim Ingold PhD Students around Contemporary Drawing today, as well as to view ‘Knowing From the Inside: Anthropology, Art, Architecture and Design’ (or for short, KFI) which is a 5-year project funded by a European Research Council Advanced Grant held by Professor Tim Ingold. Check it out here, www.abdn.ac.uk/research/kfi

The Intro for KFI is :
‘Knowing From the Inside’ seeks to reconfigure the relation between practices of inquiry in the human sciences and the forms of knowledge to which they give rise. Its fundamental premise is that knowledge is not created through an encounter between minds furnished with concepts and theories, and a material world already populated with objects, but grows from the crucible of our practical and observational engagement with the world around us. Knowledge, we contend, comes from thinking with, from and through beings and things, not just about them. Our overall aim is to show how research underpinned by this premise could make a difference to the sustainability of environmental relations and to the well-being that depends on it.
