Tent City University Drawing Class - Documents of Hope and Resistance

CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS

Tent City University is a temporary teaching and learning space that has been set up as part of Occupy the London Stock Exchange (LSX), an open space in which to learn, share knowledge and develop skills through a wide series of workshops, lectures, debates, films, games, praxis and action.

On Sun 20 Nov 2011 artists Daniel Simpkins and Penny Whitehead will lead a drawing session at Tent City University, working with artists and non-artists to explore ways of documenting and responding to the activity at Occupy LSX, with the aim of contributing to the active and enduring visual record of the London occupation and more broadly of the international movement.

No previous experience or perceived skill at drawing is necessary to participate in this workshop, as the focus will be on looking, thinking and responding with a fast and playful pace, emphasising a shared process over a polished product. Whether you are directly involved in the Occupy movement or are a first-time visitor, we invite you to take part in this session which we hope will play a crucial role in the recording and sharing of radical ideas, inspiring future actions and movements.

If you would like to take part, just turn up on the day. Basic drawing materials and paper will be provided but please bring your own as well if you can, along with something to lean on (like a book or clipboard) and remember to bring warm clothes. We will meet in the Tent City University tent near the front entrance to St Paul's Cathedral at 12.30pm. We estimate that the session will last approximately 90 minutes.
