Cross-cultural embodied drawing and interpretation workshops

"Salma Caller planned and delivered an exciting workshop to a group of MA Artist Teachers at the Pitt Rivers Museum exploring interpretation of the museum collection.  She encouraged the students to critically engage with and debate the conceptual nature of museology with a particular focus on the complexities of cultural positionings of audience and curator.  Students were provided with the opportunity to respond using creative making collaboratively, a process they found to be exciting, innovative and stimulating.  The students made reference back to this workshop regularly, drawing on Salma's inspiring and intelligent engagement with visual culture throughout their Master's study."
