University of Lincoln set up workshops with Ruth Ewan
Taking cue from Lincoln’s historic connections with the Magna Carta and the Charter of the Forest artist Ruth Ewan will develop a series of collaborative workshops with young people which will result in the creation of new works exploring the continuity of ideas first put forward via these historic documents.
The workshops will use graphic text and experimental cartography to explore ideas rooted in the historic charters and their continued relevance to the present and possible futures. The challenge will be set to map a global commons. These workshops will result in a series of slogans, text works and drawn maps.
The project forms part of Lincoln university’s first commissioning programme, taking place in sites and partner venues across the city of Lincoln in the year of the Magna Carta’s 800 year anniversary which will include two further commission during the year, also taking inspiration from Magna Carta.
