The Contemporary Art Working Group is delighted to co-host the Colour Literacy Project for a focused round table session. The hour-and-a-half workshop will explore examples of practice – provide participants with time to reflect and discuss together. Adaptation cannot be an afterthought and color plays a crucial role in how we engage and interact with one another and the world around us.
The discussion will tease out how color theory and practice can have a real impact and seek ways to draw out the issues of Climate change consequences that are impacting not only our environment but human rights, poverty, inequity, global food security, health, etc. How are we as academics and practitioners engaging with color through our teaching and learning, and with innovation and research to address and contribute to the rapid call for action and adaptation.
