Current Programme

IMG_0915

The learning programme includes projects that respond to specific exhibitions and to an annual theme. This year the theme of ‘Disappearing Cities’, will be used to exploring the idea of urban transformation and the city in transition; to explore connections between cities; investigate the complex social, architectural, historical, and cultural layers that comprise the fabric of urban society; and explore the built environment through film, photography, drawing and creative writing and poetry.

Artists working across a range of creative disciplines will work with groups in London and in the Middle East on a series of projects. For further information on the learning programme and specific projects, please contact education@mosaicrooms.org

Details of previous projects can be found on the  Past Programme page.

RECENT PROJECTS

A multi-strand programme of live events, talks, literary readings, film screenings, and participatory workshops was developed for March/April 2014 in response to the Mogadishu – Lost Moderns exhibition.

Engaging with contemporary Somali culture both in London and in Somalia, the programme invited reflection on the issues raised in the exhibition, such as the value of civic architecture and heritage preservation in places of conflict, and how we live today in the urban environment.

Photojournalist Kate Holt of Aretestories led a series of photography workshops with young people aged 14-17 from the Somali and Moroccan communities in the Royal Borough of Kensington & Chelsea, in collaboration with Baraka Youth and MCWG. The project explored their attitudes to their local area, and developed their composition and editing skills, encouraging them to look differently at the world around them. The resulting slideshows can be seen on the Mosaic Rooms blog.

Somali poet Warsan Shire, Young Poet Laureate for London 2014, led a workshop with a group of young Somalis at Baraka Youth, exploring Somali poetry and stimulating creative writing from participants. The workshop encouraged participants to explore their experiences as young Somali’s living in London. Listen to the resulting poems on the Mosaic Rooms blog.
