Intro
A possibility to broaden and deepen artistic projects and interact and peer-learn with designers and artists coming from different disciplines.
The masterclass ‘People Skills: The Transition of a Creative Practice from Private to Public’ is organised by the Jewellery Design department and research platform Precious Dialogue of St Lucas School of Arts Antwerp in collaboration with Mah Rana.

The aim is to provide participants an intense work period wherein the discursive and practical doing and making are intertwined, to further develop and emphasize research competences. The masterclass is a possibility to broaden and deepen artistic projects and interact and peer-learn with designers and artists coming from different disciplines.

Together with Mah Rana and other participants, you will develop a public-engagement strand to your current creative practice. Public-engagement is an opportunity for artists to connect with their audience. The goal of this masterclass may include the production of an artwork or the participatory action itself. You will consider how to develop meaningful interactions with an audience whereby how to plan, communicate effectively, and deliver an outcome that is a positive experience for all participants are aspects to consider.

The first days you will focus on establishing a working relationship; drawing on strengths and skills across the group of participants. Through presentations of work, and conversations, the group will explore and scope potential avenues for public engagement. 
The second stage will be a testing phase. You are expected to engage in learning by doing, and understanding through self-reflection.
The third and final stage will be delivering a public-engagement outcome that has been tested and refined, followed by reflexive evaluation of the process.
