Kate Goodwin, will give the second public talk as part of the Art's Council Extending Architecture initiative, which is managed by Create on 1 April 2016 in Nun's Island Theatre, Galway Arts Centre at 7 pm.
Kate Goodwin is Head of Architecture and Drue Heinz Curator at the Royal Academy of Arts. She also heads the Department of Architecture at the Academy which promotes a debate about architecture for the public and profession and in particular its intersection with the other arts. As part of the Art's Council Extending Architecture initiative, which is managed by Create Kate Goodwin will give a second public talk on 1 April 2016 in Nun's Island Theatre, Galway Arts Centre between 7-9 pm.
We announced earlier this year the introduction of training for cultural practitioners with an interest in programming, exploring and sharing the cultural and artistic value of architecture with the public. Leading international practitioners, Todo Por La Praxis, Kate Goodwin, and Teddy Cruz will provide interactive training sessions in Dublin, Galway and Cork in 2016 as part of Extending Architecture training initiative. In addition, each of the three practitioners will make a rare Irish appearance, giving talks which will be free for the public to attend.
These renowned international practitioners Todo Por La Praxis (Madrid), Kate Goodwin (London) and Teddy Cruz (San Diego) will share their expertise and insights with training in how to programme, present, collaborate, mediate and work in new ways in architecture.
Recognising that currently in many architectural practices, arts centres, galleries, festivals, civic venues and public spaces around the world, dynamic practitioners are seeking to broaden out the field of architecture beyond the design and construction of buildings alone. This training will reflect these developments and is in line with Arts Council policy and commitment to architecture. These examples of ways to engage the public with architectural practices and the presentation of architecture open out a sense of architecture as a platform for collective conversations about the kind of world we live in today.
