Exploring Identity: Experiences of Self and the Other in Lockdown Georgina Obaye Evans

04 Jun 2020

An Online Personal and Professional Development Workshop

Iniva Creative Learning’s Exploring Identity workshops provide a supported space in which to explore how class, culture, gender and race all work to develop and influence our sense of self. 

In this online workshop, artist and art therapist Georgina Obaye Evans will open up conversations around our sense of self and other at this challenging time.

The workshop will provide an activity using our Emotional Learning Cards followed by a guided group discussion to spark thinking, dialogue and learning to address:

  • How is our current experience is impacting our sense of self: the internal, and our understanding of the other: the external? 
  • How can we use contemporary art (both making and viewing) as a means of supporting the formation of the self?
  • How can the Emotional Learning Cards help us explore how and what we feel?
  • How can we use the cards to help others explore how and what they feel?

This workshop will be held via Zoom. In advance of the workshop you will be sent a pack by email with: details of how to connect, two selected Emotional Learning Cards (pdf format) and accompanying word banks.

Maximum group number: 10
This workshop contributes to CPD and can be certificated on request.
