The poster has a green background. Black text at the top reads a film and participatory workshops touring England, Wales and New Zealand.

Underneath large text in black and white reads The Weather Report.
The image beneath this text is of white woman's hands cradleing a large white conch shell. A calm turquoise sea is in the background. The fingers have gold jewelled rings on them. The fingers have swollen knuckles. The hand supporting the base of the shell is bent backwards.
Text beneath the image reads
What does it mean to be a ‘good ancestor’ ? 
The Weather Report is a powerful and moving short film by artist Jill Impey. The film records the voices of women from coastal, immigrant and creative communities in New Zealand and England. The women reflect on their relationships with heritage and feelings about the weather, the sea, migration and colonisation.
Post-screening workshops with Lucida (Jill’s fictional character) invite you to take inspiration from the film and use creative processes to explore what being a good ancestor means to you.

aKIN Exhibition Workshop

“This is a time to take a lesson from mosses” Robin Wall Kimmerer, renound writer and botanist

Mosses have survived 350 million years of catastrophe. They are ecologically important, absorbing huge quantities of water, helping to soak up rainfall and create humidity, offering a home for creatures, like woodlice and nematodes.

There are around 1,000 bryophyte species of mosses and liverworts in the UK. Many require microscopes to distinguish between closely-related species, how can we get to know and learn from them?

For this workshop during Participate’s exhibition a-kin, Jill Impey will take you on a brief artist’s guide to learning from mosses. No experience necessary, there will be some fun drawing and mark making and a gathering of words to make poetry snippets you will need pencil / pen and A4 paper. 

Suitable for Adults & Children Age 8 upwards ( no unaccompanied children)

Session lasts 1 hour, Sunday 13th of February at 1 pm

Face to face: at the Unitarian Church Shrewsbury ( max 6 including carers – please note there are stairs up to the workshop room ) booking via : shrewsburyunitarians@gmail.com
