Interdisciplinary Workshop “DRAWING HERITAGE(S)”

Registration is open for the interdisciplinary workshop “Drawing Heritage(S)“ that will take place on Saturday, 28 September 2019, at the University of Évora – Colégio do Espírito Santo, amphitheater 131.

Reflecting from the perspective of humans’ ambiguous bond to heritage and environment, the event aims to bring together scholars and artists to ponder critically on the possibilities of drawing as a form of visual inquiry in researching landscape and heritage. With a goal to deepen the interdisciplinary debate, it joins the theoretical and methodological approaches from several fields of study.

In the afternoon, the debate shifts outdoors, in a field trip to the selected heritage site where the audience will join speakers for drawing in situ experience.

The workshop welcomes students, as well as artists, researchers and professionals from the related fields. 

Participation is free of charge, but is subject to registration due to the limited number of places for the fieldwork activities.
