Forge Professional Workshop Series: Documenting & Archiving Artwork

cal  Wed Jul 5
6:30pm-9:00pm

Akin Lansdowne, Studio 302

In this workshop, artist and curator Jessica Thalmann will discuss the importance of clear, accurate and striking documentation of artwork. Various technical and logistical issues will be broached while photographing paintings, ceramics, sculptures, installations, performances and various print based media. Artists and creatives will be informed about best photographing practices including, lighting, placement, camera techniques, digital workflow, editing, export settings, and scanning. Archival and cataloguing practices will also be discussed; focusing on data management software, long term storage, preservation and creating and easy catalogue of current inventory to find and locate items.

After providing advice on each of these topics, Thalmann will offer a demonstration on techniques for photographing 2D and 3D media. This workshop is ideal for artists and makers of all skill levels but should have some experience with a digital camera and tripod. Workshop will be followed by a Q&A.

Liberating Structures Immersion Workshop

cal  Wed Oct 11 - Thu Oct 12
9-5pm both days

The 519 - 519 Church St.

Join Keith McCandless, Liz Rykert, and the active community of LS practitioners in Toronto for a roll up your sleeves and dig deep 2-day immersion workshop at the 519 Community Centre.

This workshop will focus on the themes of Reaching In and Reaching Out, and how the use of Liberating Structures can break our perceptions on how best to work together and how best to serve our communities and client base. Day I will focus on internal "reaching in” patterns and “how to" liberate everyday meetings. Day II will build on Day I by exploring “reaching out” to your clients/customers/students/patients and shaping next steps or innovations together. Both days are designed for both experienced LS users and people just getting started.

Liberating Structures offer creative, inclusive approaches to organize group interactions in ways that lead to purposeful action quickly. Based on insights from complexity science, we will briefly examine the underlying micro-organizing elements of every interaction before diving in and practicing together.

Specifically with private, nonprofit, and public sector organizations and individuals in mind, the two days will be packed full of opportunities to learn up to 25 Liberating Structures. You will learn alongside people who are themselves just getting started or who may be seasoned practitioners looking to up their game.

2 day corporate/private rate: $650 + hst

1 day corporate/private rate: $325 + hst

2 day nonprofit/public rate: $375 + hst

1 day nonprofit/public rate: $190 + hst

This is a physically accessible and anti-discriminatory venue. Please contact erin@metastrategies.com with any questions or comments about accessibility.
