Making Time explores the philosophy of time through the lens of contemporary fine art.

During this half-day workshop, I will introduce participants to my research on the temporal world and share provocation and inspiration for creating responses to the workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with a philosopher of time, and to take part in discussions, aimed at helping us to understand our intuitions about time and how to express these intuitions creatively.

Participants will be encouraged to respond to the workshop in the form of a small piece of visual art, communicating their own ideas about it would take for the world to involve time.


Ages 16+

Able to be creative, e.g. drawing, painting, creative writing etc.
