The Bridge to Bring People In (Artist Workshop)

Playable Streets and ASSITEJ Singapore (Australia, Singapore)

12 Mar 2024, Tue, 7pm


(Intermission: None)

Esplanade Rehearsal Studio

This event is over.


Technology can be a tool that brings people in, and in the field of Arts for Young Audiences where engagement and interaction is key, openness and inclusiveness, as well as considerations of design criteria are even more essential. How can technology be employed to create interactive work that fosters engagement and collaboration between complete strangers?  


Through referencing the example of site-specific musical installation The Plants, Glen Walton (Playable Streets) will introduce participants to a framework of facilitation, as well as share design criteria that will improve engagement and collaboration, in order to create a more cohesive piece of work.  


Participants will be introduced to interpersonal touch technology for creating their own musical compositions. They will engage in an open discussion about methodology, histories of practice, and most importantly, how to evolve their status as artists to become bridges for engaging others. 


Only members of ASSITEJ Singapore will be able to register for this workshop.
