Mending the Museum: Collaborative Sound Piece Workshop
With Camila Salcedo and Karina Roman
We invite youth 8-18 years old to join artists and educators Camila Salcedo and Karina Roman in a workshop inspired by Paola Torres Nuñez del Prado’s artwork titled, Sonic Waraca. In this 2-hour workshop, participants will explore the Textile Museum’s education collection of global textiles to create a collaborative sound piece using computerized audio interfaces. Through doing so, participants will activate the collection through sensory means of touch and sound. Participants will be guided through sound meditation, learn about the cultural significance of some of the collection items, begin to identify textile techniques and get to experiment collaboratively.
For any accessibility needs, or other questions, please email Leah Sanchez: firstname.lastname@example.org
This program is part of a series of 6 youth-centered workshops presented in partnership with Mending the Museum.
Mending the Museum is a collaborative duo comprised of Karina Román Justo, visual arts scholar and educator, and Camila Salcedo, interdisciplinary visual artist and educator. Our intent is to work as a bridge between artists, communities, regional museums, and craft objects from their collections, to reflect on ancestry and speculative futures within the framework of cultural belonging. We are both emerging Latinx curators based in Canada, with an interest in museum practices and pedagogical approaches in art spaces. We have worked together previously through Sur Gallery’s Mentorship Program in 2019-2020, and have since come together to establish the basis of this collaborative relationship. Together, we took part in Subtle Technology’s Curatorial Mentorship in 2022.
