Anti-Isolation Project Details



Every night will be a combination of Alice sharing a new artist/idea using hand-outs/projections/hands-on activity.  

Then we’ll move to a mixture of shorter ‘shares’ and longer ‘feedback’ sessions.

  • Shares will be 5-10 minutes in which you bring in a new development in your practice, ask for advice, introduce yourself and your work, share an inspiration, etc. You are welcome to bring work or hand-outs, but the 10-minute time limit will be observed. You are encouraged to anchor this share with a particular question.

  • Critique sessions can last 15-20 minutes and provide time for more in-depth constructive discussion and feedback facilitated by me and anchored by a question by you. The studio has a white wall for displaying 2-D work, and Alice can also project media files. You can bring in 1-5 pages of written material, perform for us, assign us roles in your short-short play, etc.
