Plats: Galleriet, T154, Textilhögskolan
Evenemangstyp: Seminarium

Högre seminarier (före detta Designseminarier) ger en inblick i designområdets pågående forskning och professionella arbete. Under åren har ett antal seminarier presenterats och samlat designers, konstnärer, entreprenörer och inspirerande människor som formar området för konst och design.

Seminarierna hålls på engelska och är öppna för alla, men de är i första hand för masterstudenter inom textil- och modedesign samt för lärare och studenter från andra program. Om du inte är student eller lärare och vill gå på seminariet, kontakta gärna ansvarig för seminarierna Saina Koohnavard, innan.

6 mars - Petra Dokken
No story, nothing… A saying in the aboriginal culture, meaning exactly that, without a story you cannot answer the questions defining us as humans. Who am I? Where am I going? Is there a meaning to it all? These are questions asked in Greek mythology as well as contemporary pop culture. My name is Petra Dokken, I have worked as a journalist, writer and storyteller all over the world for more than 15 years. Lucky enough to have met with very successful, wise and creative people – in fashion, travel, media, business, art, architecture... I have researched and experienced. Interviewed, listened, observed - and daydreamt (very important for my own creative process!). And I have learned that everyone has an interesting and unique story to tell. But it seems we need to find the courage to be ourselves to live and tell our own stories. Start with the truth, and someone will listen. Trust me (even in fiction there is always the truth). Working from the inside out, from stillness to movement, expanding the most personal to a wider universal circle. In a novel, an Instagram post, a Hollywood movie, a project description, a song… This is the work and the power of story, and of storytelling. Every time.
