WCFA has developed an overarching theme as a guide to run these 3-day design workshop, where each mentor can shape it in their own way. Mentors could consider any regional artefact that may relate to wider understanding of 'region' - we encourage critical, creative and reflective readings and translations. We accept 'artefact' in the broadest sense: it might be man-made or natural......an object, setting, memory, dream, story, poem, drawing, conflict or border.
