About

You are invited to an afternoon/evening of creative workshops exploring themes of journeys and migration through imaginative play and collaborative storytelling, bringing stories to life with drawing, printmaking, music, puppets and movement. With Marina Warner from Stories in Transit, Bobby Lloyd and Miriam Nabarro from Art Refuge UK, storytellers, artists, dancers and musicians the event will take place at Elephant West.

This drop-in event will be open to everyone from the local community, across London and beyond: children, families, teenagers, adults, artists, writers, storytellers, researchers, poets, community workers, office workers ….

Creative Imaginative Play with Marina Warner and guests from Stories in Transit

These workshops will begin with a story from the Arabian Nights, about someone who dreams the clues to finding lost treasure.  This will act as a starting point for a new set of imagined stories created by you!

Cyanotype (sunprint) and experimental mono-print with Bobby Lloyd and Miriam Nabarro from Art Refuge UK

The artists will introduce the printing processes of cyanotype and mono-print to explore place, journeys, maps and migration – using ink, water, tape, toy vehicles, tracks, objects, cloud and hopefully sun!
