In September Iniva Creative Learning continues our Emotional Learning Cards workshop programme. This series will be facilitated by Georgina Evans, art psychotherapist. Georgina was born in Nigeria and is of mixed heritage. Exploring ideas relating to how our identity is shaped by conscious and unconscious influences has always been of key interest to her both as an artist and a creative therapist.

The workshop series is open to all and will introduce ways to open up important conversations about class, culture, gender and race. The workshops will include ‘hands on’ exploration of key themes and art exercises. For those working in the field, these can be adapted for use in group or individual sessions with all ages.

Workshop Themes:

  • Who are we in our family, social and work life? How might ethnicity, class, and race influence these identities? How fluid are they?

  • How do gender and sexuality shape our perception of self and other? To what extent has our family history or culture informed our understanding of gender and sexuality for better or worse?

  • In what ways do the stories we tell ourselves about who we are limit who we are and who we can become? How is this impacted by the stories others tell about us? How can these stories be re-framed so that they inspire us?

Workshop participants will be given handouts including suggestions for practical activities and discussion points to take away linked to our Emotional Learning Cards. Sets can be purchased at a discount during the series.

Places are limited so early booking is advised.

For more information on the Emotional Learning Cards visit the Learning section of the website or email jstarr@iniva.org.

Emotional Learning Cards feature images of international contemporary art together with questions and suggestions for activity and discussion. They are a fantastic means through which to open up important personal and social conversations with young people but can equally be used as a refreshing introduction to contemporary art. Our cards are used all over the world by teachers, art therapists, counsellors, parents, artists and gallery educators.
