SKiP Statement

SKETCHING IN PRACTICE (SKiP) is a two-day symposium that explores the construction of meanings through sketching. In 2016 we brought in scholars and practitioners from diverse backgrounds to explore the question, What happens when we draw? Last year we looked inward. This year we peer outward, asking Where does sketching lead to action? This year we are focusing on the HOW and WHY particular visual strategies are used to achieve a goal.

This event is held in partnership with Simon Fraser University’s, Faculty of Communication Art and Technology; School of Interactive Art and TechnologyFaculty of Arts & Social Sciences; and the Teaching and Learning Center.
