No Place Like Home UK workshops

NoPlaceLikeHomefrontA6No Place Like Home comes to the UK in a special project in 2015 to help people from diaspora communities living in England remember and recreate their own childhood homes.

Amy Zamarripa Solis will be working with visual artists David Blandy and Larry Achiampong to deliver workshops in Milton Keynes, Bristol, Brighton and Crawley. Participants will learn how to use a range of digital skills including filming, sound recording, editing and writing to create and publish their stories in a range of mediums.

Artist and filmmaker Aikaterini Gegisian will create a film at each workshop, documenting participant’s lives. We will share these films and also the works created by participants in Autumn 2015.
