Workshop design and delivery; public exhibition
Using local heritage, history and environment as inspiration, a group of 15 young people not in employment, training or education, worked for ten weeks on a series of creative workshops including drawing, photography, animation, sound, projection, lighting and sculpture, culminating in a public exhibition of their work on the grounds of Summerlee Museum in Coatbridge.
As Lead Tutor for digital and graphic design and pastoral support, I lead workshops in typography, drawing, animation and illustration as well as encouraging reflection on personal objects and experiences as a means
to explore the young people’s identities in the past, present and future.
