Thursday 16th February
Cuming Museum, Old Walworth Town Hall, 151 Walworth Road, London, SE17 1RY (map)
Refreshments provided – all welcome
Please join myself and artist, Eva Sajovic to celebrate the end of Collecting Home, an artist residency at the Cuming Museum exploring objects, home and local stories, and the close of Home From Home, an exhibition of portraits and stories from Elephant and Castle.
– Move between three conversation points throughout the museum space, and share your ideas about the residency themes: what object in your life would you most hate to lose? What is the value of artist projects in Elephant and Castle? What are the ethics and dilemmas of participatory arts projects? What does it mean to represent individuals and communities through photos, stories and objects?
– Place your ‘bid’ to take home one of the Home from Home exhibition pictures for free (photos will be allocated and be available to collect after 18th February).
– Explore the work created by Eva, Sarah, local residents, school children, and artists throughout the project.
6.30pm – A brief presentation by Eva and Sarah, sharing highlights from the project.
7.00pm – Close
