Please note: This event took place in Nov 2015

Duration:
120 mins

Our world is a truly beautiful place, but as it changes, how will it look in the future? As part of a weekend celebrating UK artist Adam Chodzko’s new film Deep Above (which explores our attitude to climate change), we’re inviting families to join in the debate about what the world of the future could and should look like. In this hands-on creative workshop, families and friends will use cuttings and drawings to create a huge collage depicting their alternative visions for our planet and the human race.

Lead by set designer Claire Barnett and artist filmmaker Mat Fleming, the workshop aims to inspire an important inter-generational discussion about the issues we face today and our hopes and desires for the future.

This workshop is most suited to 6-12 year olds and their parents, carers and friends. Younger hands can still join in by designing and making a climate change fortune teller - put your drawings and ideas inside your fortune teller that looks at how we can help our environment.

Please note that all children must be accompanied by an adult.

We’re getting a new kitchen in December
