Event description
FLOCK PROJECT

About this Event

FLOCK PROJECT is an artwork that brings together people who have overcome adversity, and are recovering from trauma as a result of their challenging individual migration journeys. 

Project members have been learning ceramic techniques from artist Julie Nelson at the Grounding Project, London, using the therapeutic medium of clay to create a community of birds and engage in mindful practice. These birds will be exhibited together with those made at ceramic workshops held at the V&A Museum for Refugee Week 2019.

On Thursday 12th September from 6.30-8pm we will be holding a special event to introduce those involved in Flock Project, including Dr Humera Iqbal, lecturer in Psychology at UCL, Dr Gemma Eke, Clinical Psychologist at the Maudsley, Helen Shearn, Art & Wellbeing Strategist alongside artist Julie Nelson and members of the Grounding Project, who took part in the workshops.

Please join us for drinks and nibbles at the beautiful Project Space at Lewisham Arthouse, which was founded as a library by Andrew Carnegie in 1914.

The FLOCK PROJECT exhibition runs from the 4-15th September and is open to the general public. Wed-Sun 12-6pm

Julie has been collaborating with Counterpoints Arts, the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) Grounding Project, the Maudsley Charity and researchers from University College London who are interested in the role arts can have in fostering wellbeing within migrant and refugee communities.
