We are a new mobile and digital museum, stirring and collecting responses to the Climate and Ecological Emergency. As a team of artists and educators, we make and collect creative activities, games, artworks and books and use these in workshops and pop-up experiences. These activities help people explore how they feel about the changes to the environment, to think about what is causing them, and to imagine ways we might live differently.
We are based in the studios in Telegraph Hill Centre. We have received funding from Lewisham Local (the Launchpad programme) to offer workshops free of charge for community, youth and school groups in the borough.
This session will focus on drawing - as part of the Big Draw - as a creative way to help you talk together, express your feelings and imagine greener ways we can live in our area.
Families or household bubbles can work together around large scrolls of paper to keep Covid-safe. We will need to note the names of everyone attending, rather than an informal drop-in. It is most suitable for young people aged 12 and up and adults. If under 16, young people will need to come with an over-16 friend/sibling/parent.
