Artsadmin Youth Workshop: Doing things with (a body) of stories
Artsadmin Youth is our free creative programme for young people aged 16-21 who live in Tower Hamlets, Hackney and Newham. Join us for monthly workshops at Toynbee Studios or online to explore creative ideas with professional artists.
The workshop with artist Barbara Lehtna invites young people to associate with their (queer) body as an archive. Our interest is to discover what is the common social memory that is hidden between the muscles, the joints, the flesh, and blood vessels and how to access that memory through playfulness and curiosity. Saying things out loud could be giving voice to those marginalised by systematic silencing but it can also be a powerful experience of performing identities of ourselves and those who came before us.
The body has a point-of-view.
Practical information: Please wear comfortable clothes that let you move and stretch; bring with at least one printed photo of your past (it could be of you, of your family, of a relative, of friends, etc.)
Artsadmin Youth is supported by Be Part through the Creative Europe programme of the European Union, The Simon Gibson Charitable Trust and the Allen & Overy Ben Ogden Memorial Fund.
