Refugee Week 2021: We cannot walk alone
Wherever you call home, this two part workshop invites you to explore the intersection of local industry, heritage craft, and material composition. How might these connections inspire regeneration and foster community? Hear about the work of Samak Bilab Bi Delo in Palestine and Jordan, and take inspiration from the V&A collection to think about how objects from the past might inform contemporary design and change society. Participants will be invited to develop and share design ideas connected to their region.
Hosted by the founders of Samak Bilab Bi Delo, a multi-national artist collective that combines art education, heritage Palestinian craft and textile production, and Jordanian artisanal dyeing.
Part 1: The Museum in My Home - Redefining material; find a new perspective of personal possessions through an exploration of objects from the V&A collection
Part 2: Hands on! How objects can inform contemporary design and change society
This event will take place through Zoom. For this workshop you will need access to a desktop computer, laptop or tablet.
