Free creative activities for families
Every Sunday, join us for creative, hands-on activities led by our Artists-in-Residence and inspired by our exhibitions and family theatre programme. Come and spend some time together as a family making, exploring, and having fun!
This Summer season, we are pleased to welcome Nilupa Yasmin and Benny Semp as our Artists-in-Residence whose activities will be focussed on using arts and craft to tell our own stories.
Nilupa is an award-winning Birmingham-based artist and educator. Her practice combines handcraft and photographic techniques to create striking works which explore the notion of culture, self-identity and gender politics. Yasmin draws upon her culture and heritage as a British Bangladeshi Muslim woman and explores issues of under-representation through weaving and photography. @nilupayasmin_
Benny is a visual artist and educator who specialises in making art with people of all ages and backgrounds in schools, community groups, art galleries, and public events. His work is about exploring materials, techniques and concepts to make accessible and rewarding creative experiences for everyone. He uses a wide range of 2D and 3D materials to encourage people to respond creatively and have fun through art.
Why not make a day of it by also visiting our Mead Gallery, booking one of our Family Events or stopping off in to Benugo Cafe and Restaurant for something to eat and drink?
