This video focuses on a project organised by Iniva in collaboration with A Space, featuring artists; Larry Achiampong, Dia Batal and Agnes Poitevin-Navarre in collaboration with young people from four schools in the Borough of Hackney
The schools showcased artwork produced from the One & Other project exploring communalities in culture. Many of us no longer identify ourselves with one country, and the internet means that we are more likely to have contact with people in different parts of the world.
The artists used sound, video, ceramic and painting - asking what does it mean to be part of an international community? They focused on the familiarity of culture that gives us a sense of belonging. Stories were created around, for example, food as a metaphor with its historical associations, personal memories, and rituals; the characteristics of domestic architecture from different countries, and objects found at home which may have been passed on from grandparents.
Years 5 and 6 (aged 10-11 year olds) from Shacklewell, Sebright, Saint Scholasticas and Brook Community schools are took part in the project.
The One and Other project was funded by A New Direction with gudiance from the Learning Trust - Hackney.
