An All Change digital and visual arts project led by Heather Barnett. Using the Geffrye Museum's collection of historic interior design as inspiration, develop your own designs for contemporary rooms, walls and fabrics using photography, drawing and words. Work with digital imaging, drawing and photography to create contemporary designs and patterns that express your ideas about history, interior design and your local area. The project will include inspirational visits to exhibitions at the V&A Museum and a professional design studio. Your work will be displayed at the end of the project in an exhibition at Islington Museum.
Newington Green Now & Then is a new arts and heritage project for young people aged 13 – 25 managed by Mildmay Community Partnership. MCP is a community regeneration organisation and works primarily in the ward of Mildmay, in the London Borough of Islington. The project celebrates the lively history of Newington Green around the 17th and 18th century and incorporates contemporary life on the Green and young peoples' experiences of the area today.
Young people will work alongside professional artists, exploring the vibrant people and places of Newington Green through visiting local history archives, libraries, The Geffrye Museum, National Portrait Gallery, Women's Library, sound archives and more...
The free, 10 week courses run from autumn 2008 and again in January 2009 and participants will be able to complete a Bronze Level Arts Award.
The project will culminate in a final public exhibition of all the work produced, taking place at the end of May 2009. The work will also be permanently stored and made accessible for future generations through Islington and Hackney local archives.http://www.newingtongreen-nowandthen.org.uk
