Object Affinity is a workshop for Oxford postgraduates and early career researchers interested in interdisciplinary explorations of image-making, identity, permanence, space, materiality, and social relationships.
Looking for ways to develop storytelling/public engagement skills, participate in an interdisciplinary project, and explore museums?
Object Affinity is a four part experimental workshop series that invites participants from all disciplines to investigate objects and themes together. We will learn about each other’s research and find themes and images that we have in common. The workshop starts with two sessions on the objects (Assyrian Wall reliefs at the Ashmolean Museum) and the last two sessions focus on the participants own research with the ultimate aim being a collaborative public engagement project.
If your work touches on themes such as materiality, movement, scale, models, the body/human form then you might find the workshop an interesting place to test your ideas in a non-expert setting.
Please see linked document below for more details and be in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you have any questions.
The workshop sessions will be held in weeks 2, 4, 6 and 8 of Hilary Term.
