Symposium Statement

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


Sketching In Practice Symposium (SKiP) is back in 2020 and will be held on May 9th at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in downtown Vancouver BC.

SKiP continues to explore the practice of sketching in interdisciplinary contexts, and how ideas emerge through drawing. We call on artists, designers and educators of all stripes to consider this years themeā€¦ sketching as a transformative practice.

We are proud to have the Aboriginal Gathering Place hosting with us, and look forward to a strong representation from Indigenous artists, students and educators, in our call for proposals and presenters.
