From mapping objects to family trees, this thought-provoking two-day workshop invites you to consider the impulses behind how we categorise things and their associated narratives. Conceptualised and facilitated by artist-educator Ray Langenbach, participants will be led through several dialogue and co-creation exercises, will engage with their chosen objects and share stories about themselves in relation to the narratives drawn from selected artworks in the Gallery.
