Cultural workshops this autumn!

Many people in an audience are seen from behind and in front of a stage.

In November 2023, about a hundred LU employees met at Skissernas museum for a first cultural meeting, or tinder for cultural collaboration as we called it then. It was a success with several short presentations on how researchers and teachers use and integrate art and culture in teaching and research.

The survey conducted afterwards revealed a desire for more in-depth exercises, longer time with the collections and a place for information about different ways of working and what support you can get. Those of us working on the cultural strategy will try to meet all these needs, starting with four workshops in the fall. More information and links to registration will be presented after the summer but I offer some information already now.

Each workshop will last 3 hours and take place between 9-12 and participants from all disciplines are welcome.

On Friday, September 27, Fredrik Haller from the Theater Academy will lead a workshop where participants will be introduced to the basics of acting and then go on to discuss how this can be developed for use in teaching.

On Friday, October 18, Emma Johansson from LUCSUS will lead an exercise where participants will learn about methods for creating visions of hopeful and possible futures, and how to map out what needs to change to get there.

The visions will be illustrated by artists from Skåne's cartoon schools.

On Wednesday, November 6, it is time for haiku writing led by Susanne Pelger from Educational Sciences. The aim is to encourage creative perspectives and reflection through haiku writing based on your own research.

On Wednesday, November 20, there will be a workshop at the Skissernas Museum where you can test the university pedagogical method OBL, object-based learning. How can you use the art in the museum's collection as a resource and conversation opener in your teaching?

The fall will end with a two-hour cultural mingle on Wednesday, December 4, to which everyone is welcome, even those who have not participated in workshops. We will reflect on the workshops and show simple exhibitions of the results.

A warm welcome to these exciting and stimulating workshops!
