The Exchange Youth Program is now well under way! Both of our groups are busy creating their projects and instructions which they will later swap! This program was designed by educator/designer Lisa Novak, and will last 10 days. Participants are working closely with artists Keg de Souza and Walter Scott at Emily Carr University.
Each group is working collaboratively to develop an installation considering the unique site and context of ECUAD’s Granville Island campus. Both groups will develop instructional written guides of their process, and will trade instructions once they have completed their works, each attempting to create what the other group has just made.
Working with only written, abstracted instructions and subtle hints regarding the use of materials, Exchange will culminate in a public presentation at ECUAD of works developed, and a subsequent publication.
