Doodles to blue plans, mind maps to cartographs and everything in between.
Drawing is a way to think, communicate and map our transdisciplinary world
….and that’s what’ll be on minds of illustrious heads who are coming together for the Drawing Out Conference from April 7 to 8 in Melbourne.
Drawing Out is an transdisciplinary conference jointly organised by RMIT University and University of the Arts London.
From a curious child who holds a crayon to the professional, drawing seems to have a tremendous impact on how we think and influence other people to carry out professional and personal lives.
Stretching across to trace and Drawing as a modus operandi in a myriad of disciplines – such as physical and virtual drawing; Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural practices; digital schemas; fashion templates; architectural and engineering designs; creative writing; media and communications concepts; cartography and scientific schematics; architectural and mathematical modelling; business and financial mapping; legal, educational and political visualisations.
Key themes around which papers will be addressed in the program are:
1 – Drawing in / Drawing is a way of thinking
Drawing as second nature: how do we think openly through drawing?
Drawing as a speculative activity.
2 – Drawing out / Drawing is a way of mapping
After drawing: how is drawing an impetus to other practices?
What opportunities exist for new technologies as a way of mapping our world?
3 – Drawing across / Drawing is a way of communicating
Drawing as a part of general literacy and its relationship to numeracy, writing and measurement.
Drawing as a means of transferring information.
