EDUCATION AND WORKSHOPS II
Between 2013 and 2015 I worked with the National Maritime Museum, Greenwich, devising and delivering workshops for families and school groups. A museum whose collections cover migration, slavery and the beginnings of globalized trade, I was particularly interested in how we can utilize this collection to talk about individual and national identity.
During the time at the NMM, I worked with artist Maria Amidu to deliver a series of workshops around identity and slavery. Another workshop I delivered for young children was about globe-making, inspired by the Buckminster Fuller’s Dymaxion Projection and his concept of the world as ‘one island’. They were then asked to design and make their own journey across the globe, capturing what’s in their own ‘one island’.
