A series of online workshops with London-based artist The Fandangoe Kid. Discover the importance of creativity in assisting the grief process. An opportunity to explore your grief creatively and unfold loss in a safe space.
For this workshop attendees will need access to:
- Access to typography from newspapers / magazines / letterpress (can also be handmade)
- Large format paper / material (to do layout on)
About the host: Working internationally, The Fandangoe Kid's work seeks to smash taboos around complex subject matters such as death, trauma, mental health and gender constructs.
She has created work for a broad range of purposes from the Turner Prize in Hull 2017, to installations for the Mayor of London's charity Thrive, to screenings of her film INTO YOUR LIGHT for Tate Modern and Adidas LDN. Her work has been featured on BBC News and broadly in international press.
Having lost almost all of her family in NYC in 2011, Annie's work seeks to create a platform for open conversation about typically taboo subject matters. In June 2019, she returned to NYC to screen her film INTO YOUR LIGHT, made with Tara Darby, on the Manhattan Bridge.
She has worked with young people in inner city London for over 10 years, setting up an Art and Design Department in a brand new school in her neighbourhood, her remit being to encourage young people from all backgrounds to know themselves better through their creative practice.
