Explore your stories of grief and hope through photography and collage, with interdisciplinary artist R.I.P. Germain.

Through dialogue and making, you’ll work together to explore experiences of loss that have resulted from the events of recent months. In a safe space, you’ll discuss the systems that perpetuate racial injustice, and the movements that counter it. What are some of the different forms of grief? What have we lost, individually and collectively? How can we make sense of our experiences through visual storytelling?

This project is a collaboration between Cubitt's Curatorial Fellows Languid Hands and Institute of Anything, our young people's programme. The project will inform R.I.P. Germain's exhibition, taking place in the autumn as part of Languid Hands' programme No Real Closure.

Institute of Anything is our young people's programme. Young people work alongside contemporary artists, develop skills and make friends. It’s called Institute of Anything because anything is possible. We support young people to take their art practice in new directions.

This project has been commissioned as part of Islington's Summerversity and Launchpad programme, and is supported by Islington Council.
