MULTIMEDIA HERITAGE PRODUCTIONS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE: TMC COLLECTIVE

RIVINGTON PLACE, LONDON. 2015

| WORKSHOP

 

In 2015, Autograph ABP brought together a collective of young, aspiring cultural producers to create a series of multimedia productions and events in response to the 19th century photographs unearthed as part The Missing Chapter archive research project. Over a period of six months the group met with artist-mentors and guest speakers from a number of disciplines in a series of weekly workshops. As a culmination of the mentorship programme, the TMC Collective produced an exhibition of new works in response, and curated a discursive programme of events staged at Autograph ABP in January 2016. The programme represented an opportunity for peers and other young creative practitioners and thinkers to hear directly how the photographic images sourced for The Missing Chapter has inspired their personal engagement with heritage, the creative works produced as a result, and how the experience has impacted on their individual practices.

 

Members of the collective: Heather Agyepong, Yasmine Akim, Lara Akinnawo, Kariima Ali, Aminata Blondin Diop, Tania Camara, Helene Cockman, Chante De Terville, Deborah Hughes, Abira Hussein, Elijah Maja, Nyasha Mangera Lakew, Shanice Martin, Olivia Mathurin-Essandoh.

MULTIMEDIA HERITAGE PRODUCTIONS WITH YOUNG PEOPLE: HOXTON STREET DESIGN

 LONDON 2014/15

| WORKSHOPS

 

A variety of different outreach workshops were held between 2014 – 2016, often with participants producing their own creative work. These included the Arcoloa Theatre, All Change Arts, and Rich Mix amongst other partners.

 

One of those engagement was a collaboration with a group of local students from Hoxton Street Design, Hoxton Hall who participated in a workshop led by Maria Amidu at Rivington Place, exploring the images from Black Chronicles ll in relation to portraiture and representation. The students produced and installed a series of screen prints in response to the exhibition. Hoxton Street Design has been developed for 14-19 year olds, and aims to bridge the gaps between art activities, education and careers in the creative industries.

 

The work featured was created by Lamin Banja (2014), with the triptych titled as follows: 1: Don’t blame me for being in your land, ask the one that brought me here; 2: ‘I was a slave but now I’m equal to my master’; and 3: ‘What is the difference between me and you? I’m black you are white. What else?’.
