Taking inspiration from the Journal exhibition and from a piece of research into young Londoners' relationship with arts and culture, this is a two-part workshop for 16-25 year olds reflecting on young people's relationship with the city and exploring practical solutions to help them connect with its cultural scene.
Creative workshop: 11am - 1pm
Led by artist Harold Offeh, this creative workshop addresses our relationship with places and our everyday journeys in the city. Using different technologies, individuals will reflect on the multiple spaces we inhabit; our selves, our bodies and our communities.
Harold Offeh works in a range of media including performance, video, photography, interactive and digital media, employing humour as a means to confront the viewer with an assessment of contemporary popular culture. He studied at the University of Brighton and the Royal College of Art, London. Recently Offeh has approached the themes of futurism and hair through collective live engagements with other artists, performers and community participation. He has shown widely both in the UK and internationally. He lives in Cambridge and works in London and Leeds where he is a senior lecturer in Fine Art at Leeds Metropolitan University. Recent exhibitions include: PINATOPIA & MOUNT FOLLY. Follies of Youth, Pavilion Project. Temple Newsam, Leeds, UK 2013 TRANSPORTER. Art On The Underground Commission, London, UK, 2013-14. THE SHADOWS TOOK SHAPE, Studio Museum Harlem, NYC, USA, 2013-14.
