In Our Own Words
Workshop with Victoria Adukwei Bulley
Sat 5 Aug, 2pm – 4pm
Mother Tongues filmmaker Victoria Adukwei Bulley leads a workshop exploring heritage, culture and language.
The workshop will expand upon the creative process behind Mother Tongues, an innovative poetry, translation and film series celebrating acclaimed British African poets alongside the cultures, languages and women that have nurtured them.
Bulley will then lead a series of hands-on activities exploring the potentials and challenges of foregrounding personal narratives and family histories as the foundation of your artistic practice.
