In Touch: Workshop

22 November, 2020, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is an online event.

What can be learnt from the heightened awareness of (and restrictions surrounding) touch which characterised experiences of the COVID-19 pandemic? Might the experiences of Deafblind communities, and those who rely on their sense of touch to navigate the world, aid our shared understanding of this new normal? How can different experiences of touch reshape audio-visual art practices and cultivate communication tools and strategies?

This interactive workshop, co-developed and presented alongside the ‘In Touch’ exhibition with the charity Deafblind Scotland, provides a meaningful insight into the experiences of the deafblind community. Alongside artists and scholars you will be invited to reflect on the exhibition’s themes, and challenge core notions of how we sense and make sense of the world.

The ‘In Touch’ Online Exhibition will be hosted on the University of Glasgow’s website throughout the festival.

This event is part of the hub series organised by the University of Glasgow.
