  • Creativity
  • Fellowship
  • Fellowship in Action

The August RSA Newcastle Network online Encounter will be presented via Zoom, by Tracey Tofield FRSA - an artist, part-time lecturer in Fine Art at Newcastle University, and a cultural activist.

Tracey has worked within the North East arts and cultural regeneration sector for over 30 years, and enjoys sharing her enthusiasm, skills, knowledge, experience and activities with like-minded people, seeing her practice as a gift as well as a vocation, with all aspects of collaboration contributing to a ‘bigger picture’ resulting in a greater whole than her own personal ‘career’.

During this time she has devised, directed and curated a variety of public-facing educational and engagement projects including ‘Art Houses’, ‘Sow, Grow, Cook, Eat’, cross-disciplinary ‘Life Drawing’ classes, and online wellbeing sessions. She is also a founding member of the Whitley Bay Film Festival team.

Her work draws from creativity theories and methodologies outlined by Marshall McLuhan, John Ruskin, William Morris, Charlie Chaplin, Art and Architecture, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, and Abraham Maslow among others.

YET there is only an hour!

In this ‘Zoom to forget the room’, Tracey will facilitate an improvised participatory not-lecture session designed specifically for this RSA audience. FUN will be the primary (apparently subversive) principle here.

You are invited to access and engage your own inner eye/brain and let go into the concept of uncertainty. Look deeper into your surroundings. Explore both your inside and outside 'vision'.

You will be in control. In your own space. With…paper.

Bring yourselves as you are, 10 pieces of paper and things to make marks with.

Hope you can make it!
