The Listening Workshop

The Listening Workshop by Fiona Whelan, in ART AS SOCIAL ACTION; An Introduction to the Principles & Practices of Teaching Social Practice Art, by Gregory Sholette, Chloe Bass and Social Practice Queens. Published 2018,  ISBN 9781621535522

The Listening Workshop was devised by artist & writer Fiona Whelan. It is a sample lesson plan of a workshop which  brings together a group of people to engage in a discursive process centred around the politics of voice and listening. Fiona has delivered the workshop in many diverse settings. Participants are anonymous and no photos are ever taken. The workshop has many different outcomes which I was asked to consider, leading me to develop six illustrations to describe various stages of the process.

All illustrations are hand drawn in pen and watercolour.
