All artists are welcome to join the conversations or present a piece of work for discussion. This includes artists who did not go to art school, artists at any stage of their career and working in any discipline.
Engine ChatChat is an opportunity for artists to share ideas, ask questions and get feedback within a supportive peer critique framework.
Elizabeth Murton has been facilitating Engine ChatChat since 2007, purposely in small groups and encouraging constructive conversation. It is an informal place to discuss art work and find out about other artist's practices. It is an opportunity to dedicate some time to get feedback on the ideas and content of your art practice, as well as meet with other artists.
This event will take place in the new Bow Arts space the 'Courtyard Rooms', next to the office.
Elizabeth will be contacting attendees with further information nearer the event.
'I really enjoyed the session. .. I ...longed to talk about ideas and processes in a friendly environment, raise questions and uncertainties, and to get such engaged feedback from other artists was wonderful.'
'Thanks for organising Engine ChatChat yesterday. It's great to see what other artists are up to and comforting to know that you're not alone in facing obstacles...'
'Thank you so much for the lovely evening!! I have learnt a lot from this sharing group. Your moderation is excellent and inspiring that successfully leads to further discussions!'
'I just wanted to write and say thank you for such an interesting and enjoyable program tonight. I really had a lot to take away from the discussion and look forward to taking part more in the future.'
These sessions are supported by Bow Arts, providing an affordable opportunity for artists to lead and share professional development amongst their peers.
