dc.description.abstractIn July 2014 a project engaging artist/parents and their children began, its aim: to conduct ‘living research’, exploring ways in which parents can collaborate and converse with their child through the activity of drawing and share that ‘feeling of birds navigating in flight’. Spanning 8 countries from Wales to Puerto Rico, Russia to Singapore, artists have submitted proposals for how they intend to structure their conversations without hampering impulse or enthusiasm and what methods they might employ to engage with their children in facilitating personal, cultural and social narratives.Simply using concertina books passed between parent and child, stories have been prompted to unfold, either implicitly or explicitly, fragmented or in sequence; ‘the covers of the book ... like a roof and four walls’ will hold truly ‘inhabited stories. This paper will explore thoughts arising from Berger’s text ‘Bento’s Sketchbook’ and ‘The Shape of a Pocket’ to examine the potential of the ongoing living research contained in the project: ‘Parental Conversations’en_US
