Once again, as we gather to explore our work as AoMO creatives, we invite you to join in and be creative in an interactive art piece situated at the heart of the conference. This artistic project; a sculptural experience based on the theme “Cultural identity and sense of space”, will be kick started at the formal opening of the conference and run throughout the days we spend together. We encourage you to please bring a rock which symbolizes your home (however you conceptualize “home”), as these rocks will ground us and support our evolving sculpture.
The intention of the project is to give participants space for individual creative expression as well as a longitudinal experience of how creative processes evolve. This will be facilitated through a space where you can create and reflect; a place where the use of different materials can express and embrace your experiences from the conference.
The project will be located in the heart of the conference, both physically and emotionally. This will provide you with the opportunity to modify the “self-sculpture” as the conference strengthens responses evolving among you as AoMO participants.
An introduction to the ‘Sculptural Experience’ will take place on Thursday as part of the formal opening of the conference. You will have the opportunity to collect your self-sculpture materials and then contribute to the community art building experience throughout the conference programme. Please visit and re-visit us and your sculpture. On Sunday morning, we will hold a debrief providing you with an opportunity to see, feel and share in each other’s experiences and understand a little more about the evolution of the community installation.
