How do we envision the future we want? Do we change existing structures or build from the ground up? 

In Making Space / Space Making we'll look at techniques for visionary placemaking, using drawing as a core tool. This workshop will include three approaches to transforming one's social values into blueprints for a future we want to work towards, as well as a short lecture on Edie's practice with the architectural imagination and the importance of bringing abstract concepts into spatial visualization.

Edie Fake is an artist working in Twentynine Palms, California. His work deals with trans and nonbinary histories, bodies and identities through pattern, color and architectural metaphor. Fake's work plays with unearthing trans histories and rendering architectural "impossibilities" as a way to visualize elusive concepts around making space for queer perspectives.

This workshop is offered at a suggested tuition of $300, with a sliding scale that goes down to $75.

If you are interested in enrolling but cost remains an issue, contact us, as we are committed to making these courses accessible to anyone who would like to participate.
