In the 31st episode of Perceived Value host Sarah Rachel Brown gives listeners insight to her recent presentation All Work Is Studio Work during the 2019 ECU Material Topics Symposium.
During the breakout session, Sarah and attendees discussed the importance of cultivating the next generation of writers, documentarians, and facilitators from all perspectives within the field of jewelry and metals. Sarah challenged attendees to think beyond the bench; just as important as the makers are the curators, editors, organizers, and educators. Each breakout session brainstormed topics within our field that those in attendance felt are not being adequately addressed, which included the lack of focus on business practices within academic programs and diversity within our field.
The sessions concluded with a series of short interviews between Sarah and artists who volunteered to be interviewed in front of the group. The intention behind these recordings were to demonstrate how to conduct an interview and to capture some of the energy and valuable discussions in the room that day.
