Creative workshop for 14 – 19 year olds interested in the arts. Learn about Liverpool Biennial’s theme of Kinship with Phosphoros Theatre.
A creative workshop for 14-19 year olds interested in the arts to explore the Liverpool Biennial’s theme of Kinship. Led by Phosphoros Theatre, the workshop will draw on the voices and experiences of refugees.

About this event

What does it mean to have a kinship? To a place, to the people there, to your culture? Join Phosphoros Theatre who work with and for asylum and refugee communities through the theatre and performance. They will deliver a workshop reflective of the international contemporary practices of the Biennial, expanding understandings of kinship, connection, home and rootedness.

Liverpool Biennial 2021, The Stomach and The Port, takes the curatorial approach of ‘Kinship’; the bonds and relationships which connect us to our families, the community and beyond, to include the wider world of nature and technology.

The Workshop will:

– Be a creative exercise in doing, making and thinking that will enable young people to learn more about refugee experiences

– Create an opportunity for the young people to think and express in a creative or contemporary way in relation to The Stomach and The Port..

The overall session should leave the attendees with some things to think about, do, question, see and respond to in their personal creative journeys.

About Phosphoros Theatre

Phosphoros Theatre is a charity that makes socially engaged performance with, for, and by refugees and asylum seekers. They make and hold space for those with forced migration backgrounds to voice, reflect on and respond to their lived experience, taking charge of the narratives that seldom include their perspective. We create nationally touring productions, deliver one-off and regular arts work with refugees, train professionals and provide paid work, training and development opportunities for refugee artists and youth workers.
