Family Workshop: Where I’m From

Friday, 24 August 2018
11am – 3pm

Session 1: 11am–12.30pm

Session 2: 1.30–3pm

We explored our local environment in this large-scale drawing workshop with artist Sarah Taylor Silverwood.

This workshop was one of a series run by Eastside Projects in Chelmsley Wood in summer 2018 as part of the Green Estate, in partnership with B37 Project. Artist Sophie Bullock led another Family Workshop on 31 August, and we also ran Many Worlds a Summer School for young people aged 16–24 who are interested in careers in the Creative Industries.

This activity supported the first iteration of Link and Shifta new offsite programme curated by Eastside Projects in partnership with West Midlands Trains. Built around a series of Artists’ residencies and Artist-Led Walks the programme develops high quality arts opportunities and experiences for people and places along the Midlands Trains route.
