Troubled by 'fake news'? Interested in improving research skills for work or school? Do you want to hold the powerful accountable?
Secret messages have existed for centuries.
From the use of invisible inks and messages hidden in plain sight to the use of military grade encryption, people have always wanted to hide their secrets. In this special Festival of Creative Learning workshop we will look at exactly how we can do that, with one essential twist: There will be no computers.
So bring your pens and papers, your folding fans and your lemons as we delve into the art of sending and receiving secret messages.
Techniques will include:
Collaborative workshop to create a new adult colouring book inspired by over 40,000 images published by the University's Centre for Research Collections (CRC) under a Creative Commons Attribution licence (CC BY).
Combining both analogue and digital processes participants will learn key skills to transform photographs from the collection into new artworks.
Attendees will be encouraged to print their contribution and colour them in with materials provided. The event will conclude with an informal competition with small prizes for the winners.
Join Intermedia and Performance artist Ayshia during the Festival of Creative Learning for a workshop exploring the beauty and benefits of sympathetic (maternal/safe) touch and vocal release.
An interdisciplinary workshop exploring the relationship of the senses and the environment to the creative process. We will meet in a specific sensory environment, a coffee house, to help stimulate the creation of literature.
Drawing on the history of writing and café culture, participants will be encouraged to think about how we use these spaces in the 21st century: as social spaces, or as spaces to be ‘alone together’. How do our conceptions of these spaces contribute to our creative writing?
Bilingual creative writing workshops imply English as being continuously in co-relations with other languages, German, Spanish, Italian, or Chinese. This workshop involves the exploration of the identity of bilingual potential students or writers that can enhance their skills and imagination. We will focus on words and texts that cross borders of understanding not because of rational thinking, but rather of innocence in knowing its representation and meaning in its own context, that comes along with its time, space, gender, or representation.
Imagine that a tiny house becomes your classroom. How would you learn differently if your lecture was relocated into a mobile shepherd's hut? Discover the concrete utopia of a civic educational sanctuary. In the academic world of busy 'think tanks', take a break around the wood burner of this decelerated 'dream tank'!
Second of three Festival Welcome Hut days: Participatory research day. Sign up to discover the tiny house as an unprecedented element in arts-based methodologies. Observe the public sphere through the lens of this mobile site of hospitality and welcome.
Work together as we guide you through the steps to create your very own Story Adventure Game on the web with the Twine tool.
You don't need to write any code to create an adventure story with Twine, but you can improve your stories with variables, conditional logic, images, gifs, sound effects, and video shorts, for a multimedia experience.
Discover how you can use openly licensed images and materials from the University of Edinburgh museum, library, archives, and Media Hopper’s Open Media Bank for your own creative endeavours.
