Transformative cultural learning: collective experiential inquiry

    Research output: Contribution to conferenceAbstractpeer-review


    Drawing on local and international historical techniques as representations of learning experiences, this workshop engages ritualistic processes to foster critical, creative, and reflective thinking to envisage new art forms. Imagination and visualization encourages active collaboration using arts-based approaches for developing transformative cultural learning. Integrating ancient processes of plaster moulding and frottage, participants will be inspired by Spanish archetypal forms to create new personal interpretations through 2D and 3D dimensions. Through embodied processes these strategies connect participant voices in meaning-making and deep reflective practice. Generating ‘edgy’ communicative dialogue provokes questioning of relational contextual issues addressing social historical and political conflict to shift boundaries. These creativity and reflective workshops are designed to shift participants’ experiential learning and world views towards broader perspectives and understanding of culture. The Arts support being and becoming sensitive to aesthetic appreciation through the development of participants’ interconnected relationships as a Community of Practice (CoP).
