Clio Lloyd Jacob - UK

British Council-Vasl Initiative

1. Intercultural Transformations: Karachi-London

As part of the Vasl educational outreach program, Clio Lloyd-Jacob, from the UK, initiated a two–day workshop with 12 young artists from various art colleges in Karachi.

The idea consisted of a drawn animation, to be presented as a video, and possibly to be printed as a flipbook. A group of artists in Karachi were asked to bring or choose an object, which had some personal or cultural meaning, which reflected his/her identity. The artists explored ideas of transformations through 60-80 small drawings.

The Second artist in the UK transformed the drawing into an object of his/her choice which had meaning to him/her. Finally, this moved into an abstract form.

Each partnership’s work was made into a short animated digital video by Clio in the UK. The artists communicated by email to choose a title for their joint work and discuss the works they made with each other.

2. Art Therapy Workshop
A well attended Art Therapy lecture was given by Clio Lloyd-Jacob, which was followed by a workshop with students from Psychology, Sociology and Visual studies departments of Karachi University.

Riyas Komu conducted a two day painting workshop at the Visual Studies department of Karachi University.
