Description

Mindfulness for Sustainable Social Practice | October 7th 11-1 pm
Instructors: Zoey Hart and Christopher Spinozzi

This workshop explores an artist's guide to cultivating active communication, collaboration and community participation through mindfulness-based practice and listening. As concerns of social justice become further entangled, how will our generation of artists continue to develop sustainable spaces and methods of creative social collaboration around issues of social justice, environmental concerns and personal plights? This workshop will introduce the basics of mindfulness-based practice (similar, but not the same as meditation!) as a tool for artists to observe and respond to broader concerns in their own practice.

As part of this workshop, students will also have the opportunity to experiment with organic vegetable-derived paints.

Civic Art Lab | October 5th-7th, 2018

This talk is part of Civic Art Lab 2018 is the fourth iteration of our design and sustainability lab, held in the gallery and workshop space Chinatown Soup between October 5th and 7th, 2018. This year's lab brings together artists, designers, and educators from Columbia University, Queens College, Pratt, OCAD University (Toronto), Perez Architecture, Studio Basis, and other independent design and fine art studio. Workshops, events, and exhibitions lead investigations into diverse themes such as: climate change and climate resilience, creative re-use, urban agriculture, sustainable architecture, environmental justice, and more.
