Rhizome

Rhizome holds a unique place in creative education, and in it’s session the team  will discuss it’s role as an environment where graduates can develop the beginnings of their future careers, and the support it provides, not only to graduates but to the whole continuum of creative education, from schoolchildren to the elderly.  The session will be of relevance to those engaged in education or with an interest in creative activity.

Provocations part 2 !

These provocations are likely to be discussed and debated – come and get involved!  26th of January at TASC 2017 on the fourth floor of the college.

  • Art is a hobby, not a PROPER job!
  • Artists and art lovers deflect from the real issues.
  • Art materials should be provided by the NHS
  • If art is good for the soul why do we hear about so many depressed artists?
  • Creative and non creative individuals have no need to gather together.

Provocations so far…

Here are a few of the provocations to get things rolling…

  • Art / Creative Education is being taken over by lazy people who want to do something easy.
  • Art is not important in society; we need Doctors not Painters.
  • Youth mental health issues are caused by a lack of creative opportunities in education.
  • Why paint when you can just take a picture ?
  • Why should I have to pay for art ?
  • Why is Plymouth College of Art producing better Artists than Plymouth University?
