UQAM Professional Development Saturday 8th October

Dear colleagues,

UQ Art Museum is working in partnership with academic colleagues in the School of Classics, the School of English, Media Studies and Art History and the School of Social Science at The University of Queensland to offer a professional development opportunity for High School teachers on the topic of Portraiture/Self-Portraiture/Identity.

Taking an inter-disciplinary and inter-cultural approach the seminar provides a unique opportunity to learn about the history, meanings and ideas in portraits and self portraits from leading UQ scholars, followed by a panel discussion exploring the portrait/self portrait as a visual manifestation of a sense of self/identity in contemporary art.

We are very pleased to announce that Domenico de Clario, winner of The University of Queensland National Artists’ Self-Portrait Prize 2011 will be joining the panel discussion on Saturday and presenting an artist talk from 1.00pm-1.30pm on his work.

When: Saturday 8 October 10.00am – 2.00pm

Where: UQ Art Museum

Cost: Free

Registration closes Wednesday 5 October

Attendance at the seminar and panel discussion contribute towards the required 30 hours of Continuing Professional Development for teachers. Certificates of participation will be provided.
