Artist and workshop facilitator, Shamila Chady will lead workshops that focus on elevating voices and celebrating the contributions of forgotten heroes. Workshops are designed for young people to take part without their parents — so a great place to make new friends and build confidence. A fun space to learn new skills, try out different art forms, share ideas and showcase work.
Take inspiration from Mimesis: African Soldier to create a layered collaged representation of Africa and Europe; while tracing journeys and stories of Africans who have been forgotten, including those who took part in the First World War. You will also learn more about our Mezzanine Gallery exhibition, When The Snow Melts and create mixed media banners to celebrate people and stories that are important to you.
