Dalija Acin Thelander, an award-winning Swedish artist of Serbian origin and pioneer of installation-based performances for babies, will visit Scotland next year to lead a five-day laboratory for experienced and emerging early years artists from across disciplines based in Scotland.
This five-day lab has been organised through Playspace, Starcatchers’ artist development programme. It offers a unique opportunity to meet Dalija and learn first-hand about her practice in making work for babies, with time and space to explore this learning in a practical context. Participants can expect to work on their own ideas and develop concepts relating to work for babies in response to Dalija’s approach.
Time & Date: Monday 11th– Friday 15thMarch 2019, 10am – 5pm
There is no charge for successful applicants to participate in this lab.
