Design This!

This workshop takes students through the process of curation as storytelling. Working to a design brief, the task is to explore a work from HOTA’s collection and expand out a vision and rationale for an exhibition composition with supporting works. Rich in literacy comprehension and critical thinking, students will expand their justifying and synthesising skills to pitch the concept for a Collections exhibition.
