Waging Peace at the Plant Workshop Planning Meetin...
Posted: Oct 12, 2017
CALLING ALL ARTISTS AND CREATIVES!!!! We are just getting started! You are invited to participate in a very exciting artistic community collaboration. The Plant Arts Center will be hosting upcoming collaborative artmaking workshops spring 2018 in conjunction with The Museum of Fine Art’s 2018 Waging Peace Exhibition, the city of Tallahassee, and Leon County Schools. ALL ARE WELCOME!
The first workshop planning meeting will be at The Plant on Monday, October 23rd at 4pm. If you missed the interest meeting in September, no problem! This will be a working meeting to brainstorm, envision, and share ideas inclusive of various talks, artforms, processes, materials needed, funding, timeline, marketing/promotion, solicitation of other participants for the upcoming art-making events. Through the process of this meeting, roles of participants will be determined – ideas for talks/ideas/actions/ workshops will be suggested. Six art talks/actions/art-making workshops will be developed and each participant will be asked to commit to at least three of these.
See flyer for contacts and questions or email Jennifer at email@example.com If you can’t make the meeting, you can still take part! Email with details.
The theme Waging Peace involves active engagement and energy expended toward the goal of peace in our community. The intent is to challenge people to strive towards a balanced culture and environment through art actions.
Through a series of artmaking workshops, our hope is to bring together formal and informal institutions to meet the themes of generating energy and action toward peace. We are inviting community creatives (groups, organizations, and individuals) to design and lead the workshops creating works to be exhibited in May 2018.
