Space Academy, Workshops, 2019

 

May, BACKLIT Gallery, Nottingham

 

A series in collaboration with UK Young Artists and the Nottingham Refugee Forum. These took place in May 2019 over three days. I was tasked to propose and deliver three all-day sessions for those aged 10+. These were assisted by volunteers, and overseen by staff members from each organization. The activities received a really positive response from everyone involved.

Young Harris: Secret Signs & Symbols...Workshop, 2019

 

18 April & 18 May, Harris Museum, Preston

 

In April and May 2019, I led a two-session workshop exploring the secret signs, stories and symbols of the Harris - most notably John Somerscale's impressive friezes that adorn their Egyptian balcony. We made playful artworks together which was then cut into adhesive vinyl and placed on the walls, floors and steps of the museum - both disrupting and accompanying their permanent collection.
