Event Overview Drawing Conversations: reflecting upon collective and collaborative drawing practices is a one-day symposium intended to consider the specifics and value of collective and collaborative drawing practices. There will also be an accompanying exhibition which, along with the symposium, will consider the nature and characteristics of a range of drawing processes which are enacted through collaboration and collective imaging.

Call for symposium papers

Papers are invited for the symposium; the following questions and themes are suggestions:

  • What happens when we draw together? How is conversation formed and understood? 
  • How is the notion of the individual reshaped within a collective or collaborative drawing process? 
  • How are issues of privacy explored through co-authorship? 
  • Purpose and play. 
  • Real-time drawing for audiences. 
  • Continuous drawing: physical or digital continuums. 
  • Drawing documents. 
  • Improvisation and re-interpretation.
