Group Workshops : Fantasy Self Portrait : Communal Creativity
Images are developed during the workshop series using a variety of media; costuming, photography, collage, drawing, painting, storytelling. The products produced include costumes, a group portrait as well as individual self-portraits. A space is created whereby individual's ideas about their fantasy identities are valued, and recognised as contributing to a group identity. The workshop space recognises the self-portraits as stand-alone artworks, but essentially as fantasy figures existing within a group context. The work fosters fluid, changeable community as well as individual presentations.
