SKETCHING IN PRACTICE symposium brings together practitioners from a broad range of disciplines that think through drawing.

This year SKETCHING IN PRACTICE 2018 (SKiP) returns to the single day format. We are also moving to a new location and time of year. We welcome all past participants and those that will be joining us for the first time, to join us on October 5th 2018 in “the Hangar” at The Centre for Digital Media in downtown Vancouver BC. We are ideally suited to explore aspects of drawing as performance, drawing in space, (both real and virtual). Part expo, part exhibit, part workshop and open space, this years Sketching in Practice will be unlike any other.

This event is held in partnership with The Centre for Digital Media, Simon Fraser University’s, Faculty of Communications Art and Technology; School of Interactive Art and Technology; and the Teaching and Learning Center.
