Precarious Carnaval: Costume, Performance and Installation Workshops.
4pm–8pm, Wednesday 5 June and Wednesday 19 June.
Our June workshops will build towards collective costume/performance/installation work that will feature in Precarious Carnaval on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July at the Bridgewater Canal.
Artists from Carnaval will support attendees in practical workshops and group conversations towards the development of the work, inspired by Brazilian artists such as Helio Oiticica Ligia Pape and Ligia Clark, who worked with Carnival in the 1960s.
The workshops will be led by Renato Bolelli Rebouças, Lowri Evans and Rodolfo Amorim.
Every 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month, Islington Mill Art Academy (IMAA) offer free open public sessions at Islington Mill. The workshops are followed by one of our Potluck Dinners, so please bring along a small dish of food to share if you are able.
IMAA is a free peer-led art school. It is open to anyone who wants to be an artist. Learning activities (workshops, artist talks and studio visits, group residencies and projects, crits and feedback sessions) are shared and led by the ideas and energy of current student-members. IMAA is not formally accredited; students choose to graduate when they feel ready to work more independently as artists.
Currently we meet on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays each month (with optional extra time for group projects). We encourage anyone interested in joining to attend an upcoming session to discover if it is the right approach for you. Please get in touch for details: firstname.lastname@example.org
