Community & Artists: Co-Produced Animation
Lily Ash Sakula and Community Learning Programme Participants
Tuesday 18 May, 5.30pm
Online via zoom | Free
Join artist Lily Ash Sakula to hear about how the animation, Drawing Our Future has been co-produced by Lily Ask Sakula and participants from the Art for All community Learning programme.
Drawing Our Future is the outcome come of a series of virtual workshops with participants from the Art for All Community Learning Programme, held during the course of the Art & Action: Making Change in Victorian Britain exhibition.
Facilitated by artist Lily Ash Sakula, each workshop invited participants to discuss the paintings, share ideas and explore the themes of the exhibition through the lens of their own experiences. Participants were prompted to give voices to the silent subjects of these paintings and to imagine radically hopeful futures that we could all inhabit. As Lily Ash Sakula states: "we need art not just to reflect reality but to help us envision what could happen next; because we cannot build a better future without first imagining it."
The film, edited and directed by Lily Ash Sakula, is composed of drawings and recordings made during the workshops with the Woking Women Centre, halow, User Voice and the families programme and in response to resources sent into local schools and HMP YOI Bronzefield.
