Senior Professional Tutor Lin Holland is hosting a series of workshops that focus on people who have come to live in Liverpool and the cherished objects they have brought with them.
Organised in collaboration with artist Jane Poulton, Moving Objects is a photographic and oral history project developed as part of Tate Liverpool’s Tate Exchange Programme.
The project features seven Liverpool-based community groups, including; Liverpool Friends of Yemen, The Polish Community, SOLA Arts, Liverpool Irish Centre, Shrewsbury House Youth Club, MICAH Liverpool, and West Everton Community Council.
Each group has nominated 10 members, who are not originally from the city, to take part in morning sessions from Monday 23rd – Sunday 29th July. In the afternoons, members of the public are invited to join the project by bringing their own chosen object to be documented.
A temporary photographic studio will be set up on the first floor of Tate Liverpool and people will be able to have their portrait taken, along with a treasured object. The story behind the chosen object will be recorded, to include a description of the object, how it was first acquired and what it means to its owner.
On the final day (Sunday 29th July), all the groups and members of the public are welcome to attend a networking event in the Tate Exchange gallery space.
