Families-in-Residence: Creative Outcomes

During the Making New Worlds: Li Yuan-chia & Friends exhibition we’ve been collaborating with our three Families-in-Residence.

The families have been exploring the exhibition with artists Hannah Jane Walker, Hannah Kemp-Welch and Anna Brownsted and have created an amazing outcome which is being shared with others.

Find out more about our Families-in-Residence here.

The Emokpaires

The Emokpaires have created a beautiful activity sheet in which they invite others to explore the exhibition through both the family’s and their own eyes. The family have interviewed each other in the three Kettle’s Yard galleries and you can listen to their thoughts and reflections and think about how you might answer their questions. You are also invited to draw your favourite object and write a poem inspired by each gallery. The sheet and sound pieces have been brought together by Hannah Kemp-Welch.

The activity sheet has been printed using a Riso printer, which is much kinder to the environment than other printers as they don’t emit any greenhouse gases.

This is fantastic. We can’t wait to try out the final activity sheet ourselves!

The Arnold-Mills

The Arnold-Mills hosted a special Studio Sunday, our busiest Studio Sunday yet, exploring Cosmic Possibilities. The family devised all the activities themselves with Anna Brownsted, inspired by the LYC’s notions of community and the cosmic point. Participants signed in by leaving a hand-print before being invited to create UV worlds and galaxies, create spray-paint collaged galaxies and finally add to and explore a reflective and infinite galaxy of light.

We really loved being part of the process.

The Oti-Sarpongs

Finally, the Oti-Sarpongs have created a family activity booklet called How to be Here. The family are very creative and have tried and tested all the activities, only including their absolute favourites for you to enjoy during your visit. Writer Hannah Jane Walker has helped bring their ideas together in the booklet. The family had not been to Kettle’s Yard before, so also share their advice on how to make the most of your family visit to the gallery.

The girls had fun working together on the project. It’s amazing the ideas kids have.
