Talking Streets: Workshops & Residency
with Yasmin Hales
FREE WORKSHOPS 15:00 to 17:00
Come and join our journey to India, where we take a glimpse into the ritual world of folk and tribal art patterns that are displayed on the domestic walls and floors.
Yasmin will provide an artistic introduction into the traditional meaning and patterns of contemporary folk and tribal art, before assisting you to create your own ritual wall and floor design. This Indian art workshop is a unique and creative activity you will not want to miss! All skills are welcome in this engaging event for adults, families, friends and curious artists.
Yasmin Hales (MPhil) completed a BA (Hons) in Social Anthropology and an MA in the History of South Asian Art at SOAS, London University. Her interest in space, place and indigenous art was further consolidated in an interdisciplinary research degree in the Anthropology of Architecture at Oxford Brookes University. Her professional experience has developed as a gallery educator in Indian miniature painting and contemporary Indian tribal art at the Victoria and Albert museum. She has taught Social Anthropology at Birkbeck, London University, London College of Communication and is currently teaching Anthropology modules at City Lit Adult College and Goldsmiths University.
Inspired by her research to promote indigenous art, space and place to the wider community, Yasmin curated an exhibition called the ‘Talking Streets’ at the Harrow Arts Centre, with accompanying adult and family workshops (2016, 2017). A continuation of the Talking Streets exhibition will be on display in collaboration with the Anthropology Department at Goldsmiths University in March 2018.
