What you’ll do
Join artists Jamie Hale and Jess Thom in a creative workshop exploring how we can use laughter and joy as a catalyst for change.
The workshop will start with a conversation focusing on the connections between community, creativity and protest. Jamie and Jess will draw on their own experiences as disability activists and artists to share powerful ideas and artworks that have inspired them.
Then you’ll have the opportunity to take part in a creative activity inspired by the aesthetics of protest and disability history. You can design a physical or digital banner that shares your message with the world.
Or explore how creating something that captures a positive experience, such as a moment of shared joy and solidarity, can be a form of protection when things feel tough and help build capacity to resist.
This is a relaxed event. Cameras can be on or off as needed. You can move around and make noise at any time. If you need to dip in and out of the session, you can. There will be multiple ways to communicate, ask questions and participate (such as using the chat function if you do not want to use your voice).
If you have any access requests or requirements, for example a transcript of the event, email us at email@example.com or call 020 7611 2222.
This workshop is for 14- to 19-year-olds. It is limited to 16 places and booking is essential. You will be given joining instructions for Zoom in your confirmation email.
