Led by plattenbaustudio, this one-day workshop invites the public to actively join in a large-scale group drawing exercise in which we take on the centre of Galway city as our subject matter. Together we will use architectural sketching, mapping and field notes to study and observe the city through a wide range of lens, from the physical to the ephemeral. Filed notes will be used to record the situation on the ground, while also using a massive group drawing back at our base in the Mick Lally Theatre to input and grow the information we gather. At the end of the day we hope to have created a large-scale group drawing that is part-survey, part-dreams, encouraging everyone share their observations on the city today, as well as their wishes for the city of tomorrow.
We will provide all drawing materials, just bring yourself.
