Day 5.

  • Finish painting of zeltbahn.
  • Signing and cataloguing.
  • Discussion of the work, its’ display and consumption and how this may be affected by its context.
  • Planning and delivery of exhibition.

This workshop will be replicated as often as possible in as many locations as possible and with as many groups as possible.

This outline belies the possibility for very different levels of potential learning and adaption to local circumstances. Although the project is goal orientated with regard to the production of Zeltbahns for display, it is equally a process of emotional learning and identification for the participants.

More detailed workshop plans can be negotiated with individual groups and/or may be adapted during the workshop to accommodate individual community responses.
