Collaborative Creative Resistance at Edinboro University Feb 27 and 28

In response to an invitation by Ross Schlemmer, faculty member in art education at Edinboro University, Steve Carpenter met with art education students and performed a Collaborative Creative Resistance water filter workshop on February 27 and 28. Carpenter spoke with art education students on Thursday in coordination with a field practicum course focused on community art education.

The workshop took place at the Startup Incubator¬†on Friday. Richard Wukich, executive director of Potter’s Water Action Group joined Steve for the workshop. Carpenter presented a slide presentation to contextualize his own artwork and the Reservoir Studio water filter project followed by a press mold water filter production workshop. Wukich presented an overview of his recent work with the potters at Atamora Pottery in Osun State, Nigeria and provided the filter press from the Braddock Pot Shop.

Below is a selection of photographs from the event.
