Available until 30 June 2023.
This workshop explores the theme of Identity and is inspired by our exhibition Zaibunnisa by Maryam Wahid.
This workshop is specially devised to engage art and photography students in critical and contextual studies.
Maryam Wahid is an artist who uses photography to convey her identity as a British Pakistani Muslim woman. In Zaibunnisa Maryam takes us on a journey to discover her Pakistani Identity while visiting her mother’s childhood home in Lahore for the first time.
In the first part of the workshop, pupils will be taken on a guided journey around the exhibition by our Learning Manager. They will then take part in a discussion on culture and identity, exploring themes such as migration, family, home and belonging.
The pupils will then undertake an exercise to help them learn how to read images. Using visual literacy worksheets, they will choose one image to explore and report their findings to the rest of the class.
In the final stage of the workshop students will get creative and use a range of images, objects, and words to create a collage that explores their own identity.
