Research + narratives & platforms – workshop with Laia Abril / ORGAN VIDA

This workshop led by Laia Abril aims to provide participants a series of tools and strategies to enhance the investigation and construction of their narratives within their own projects. Abril’s work research-based revolves around conceptualisation and interpretation of facts, working with photography, video and mixed media installations.

Trained as a journalist and through her experience as a photographer, bookmaker and art director, Abril has developed a collaborative creative method to construct, analyze and refine narratives across a number of platforms. Examples of her work methodology will act as triggers for participants to think laterally about their own projects.

The workshop also considers how a combination of different media such as photography, design, text, film or illustration can transform an idea into a wider artistic project. Participants are encouraged to bring to the workshop an existing body of work, a book mock-up or installation proposal that they would like to evolve beyond the scope of photography.

Projects or ideas at an earlier stage could focus more on the generation of a research work plan rather than analysing and editing the existing content.
