ArtLab will be at Tate Exchange next week 1-3rd March as part of Reading Assembly, run by the School of Arts, Communication and Design University of Reading.
Investigate the theme of “movement” through a series of participatory workshops
Human migration, whether social, political or economic is an issue of global importance that concerns us all. There is often a great difference between a government’s understanding of ‘migrants’, for example, and the lived experience of migrants and those around them. This series of events will approach the topic by working with variety of education spaces, community and student led groups, investigating our social relationship to the issues by ‘re-socialising’ the problem.
Friday 1 March
ArtLab: Movement: Through a series of playful interactive technology-based activities, the ArtLab team will be taking you on a journey through time, space and the history of art, in order to re-think issues of identity and belonging, in a co-creative and accessible way.
Movement of the People: PurpleSTARS’ ‘welcoming committee’ will be leading visitors through a journey of sounds, interactive storytelling and rhythms with their Suitcase Stories. What will you be packing?

Alongside welcoming members of the public, ArtLab and PurpleSTARS will be joined by pupils and teachers from two Reading primary schools in our investigation of the theme of movement.
