ABOUT THE EveNt

Are you interested in art, activism and the environment? Join this free creative workshop to explore climate justice through creativity alongside like-minded young people.

We'll explore the use of art and photography to address questions of climate justice and the health of the planet, inspired by Autograph's current exhibition Mónica de Miranda: The Island You’ll get to work with contemporary artist Angela YT Chan, who uses art to address climate issues and 'green' ideas, who will guide you to explore what strategies work and which ones are not so useful. Together, we'll make a zine visualising possible greener, fairer futures. No previous experience is needed, just come along, and join in!

Bring along to the workshop any materials that relates to how you understand climate change. This could be newspaper clippings of headlines, articles, stickers, photos, a memory or thought handwritten on a piece of paper. These will be conversation starters as we create our zine using text and images.

Don't have a printer or photocopier? No problem! Before the workshop, email us anything you want to include and we'll print it out for you. This workshop is aimed at 14 – 19 year olds, but young people up to the age of 25 are welcome to come along too. This event is free, all materials will be provided.

Have any questions? We'd love to hear from you, get in touch at learning@autograph-abp.co.uk.
