Creative Lives – 20th March – Katie Schwab and James Hutchinson
Creative Lives is a series of lectures about how artists work, live and thrive in the arts and creative industries.
The next lecture is on Tuesday 20th March 4.00-6.00pm in Gateway 1 lecture theatre, and is open to all.
Katie Schwab is interested in the politics of constructing and inhabiting living space: how the building, designing, furnishing and upkeep of rooms can reveal the values, politics and ethics of the people that live there. She has a particular interest in communal living and working situations, and how an individual voice might be found within the context of a shared living space or workshop: this is explored in her work through reference to 19th, 20th and 21st century domestic design, craft processes and interpersonal relationships.
