Make Symposium 2022
23 February 2022Deadline: March 5, 2022
Join the Make Symposium 2022 for free on Saturday 5th March, online from 10am-5pm.
MAKE takes place each year and explores issues relating to making and materiality. This year the theme is the role of art in healing and repair, with leading artists, educators, curators and art therapists exploring its role ‘in both the intimate and personal healing of illness and bereavement, as well as the notion of repair and restoration in society in general’.
This Symposium is a perfect opportunity to informally network with fellow makers and artists. Each year students, educators, and art and design professionals are in attendance.
Make is hosted by the Department of Contemporary Applied Arts at MTU Crawford at the College of Art and Design in Cork, Ireland.
If you’re interested in joining the Symposium, please note, on Friday 4th March at 6pm, the official opening of MEND takes place. MEND is an exhibition featuring works by students in both Crawford College of Art and Design and the Kaunas Faculty of Vilnius Academy of Arts in Lithuania. The exhibition will respond to ‘ideas of mending’, inspired by the MAKE Symposium through a range of mediums.
All those who register for MAKE will receive a link to the MEND Zoom. Attendance to MEND is completely optional, but would be a great opportunity to connect with many of those who will attend MAKE the day after.
