Project Transfer--Shifts in the Social and Cultural Capital of Further Education Construction Students Involved in Constructing an Artwork
Goulding, Anna
Thinking Skills and Creativity, v4 n1 p1-14 Apr 2009
The International Centre for Cultural and Heritage Studies at Newcastle University has been investigating the impact of artists working with young people in cultural sites and schools. This paper focuses on "Transfer" by the artist Wolfgang Weileder; the construction and de-construction of a full-scale replica of Milton Keynes Gallery at Station Square, Milton Keynes by construction students. The art project involved collaboration between the artist, two Further Education colleges and a construction company involved in the training of construction students. This paper will investigate how the different cultures interacted during the creative learning experience, concentrating on the impact upon the construction students. "Transfer" provided training opportunities for the students, who simultaneously developed an understanding of contemporary artistic practice and began to take on ownership of the piece. Insights from this project will be presented in order to draw out implications for future collaborations. (Contains 6 figures.)
