Building Collaborative Characters: A project for young people with Joshua Bilton

Everyone wants to find their own place in the world. But where is it and what is it?*
 
Building Collaborative Characters is a project for young people (15 - 18) with artist Joshua Bilton, and the third in the series of workshops led by artists Joshua Bilton, Raksha Patel, Ursula Kelly for ACAVA's Art in the Park 2015. 
 
Using the photography, video and sound recording functions on our mobile phones and digital cameras provided we will explore ways of finding a collaborative voice. Using low cost materials we will work as a group to create ways of sharing and documenting our own interpretations of place through exploring the local parkland and constructing a number of imaginative structures to perform through.
 
Our discoveries will be gathered and curated into a final exhibition as part of the inaugural Barham Park Open Studio Weekend on 2nd-4th October2015.
 
No technical knowledge is required; materials and digital cameras will be provided if you do not have a mobile phone.
Places are free, to register your interest please contact Isabella Niven by email iniven@acava.org or call 0208 960 5015.
