• Decolonising through Imagery with Eugyeene Teh

    As the next generation of artists, we are making work that decolonises the existing structures that plague our communities. Together, we will investigate ways to deconstruct and challenge the status quo through image making in the fields of visual and performing arts.
    There will be a model making component of this masterclass, so it would be great if you could have some model-making materials on hand. We know it’s quite tricky to source materials at the moment, so here are some specific examples for options of items to bring:
    1/ Model making materials: cardboard from boxes, etc, coloured paper/card, other forms of used packaging that could be interesting in a model, fabric off-cuts, maybe some glitter!
    2/ Cutting tools like scissors or a box cutter.
    3/ Paint, markers, adhesive (glue, tape, etc), with paintbrushes if available or sponges, etc.
    4/ A small box, maybe a shoe box or equivalent, to use as the ‘stage’
    5/ … or anything else you think could be useful from around the house. A cupful of soil, small twigs from the garden, fabric from an old sock, empty toilet paper rolls — use your imagination!!
