Part of the Radical Ancestry season

This special edition has been developed by our Learning Team with researcher and visual artist, Youngsook Choi, to explore the formation of families, community and kinship.

Together with the artist, we will make alternative family trees. A family tree usually shows the roots of our family history, made up of the names of our family members in a chronological order. Instead of focusing on marital names to show who our relatives are, this workshop explores the meaning of ‘family’ and ‘belonging’ by sharing stories and memories which will form the elements of a beautiful family mobile to take home.

All young people are welcome with their accompanying guardians/parents. Some of the more technical activities are suited for ages 7 up to 13. There will be craft-based activities available for under 7 years old, so the whole family can come along.

Please note, there will be some filming taking place during part of the workshop on Saturday 30 October to be used for promotional purposes. You will be asked to give signed consent when you check in on the day. If you have any questions, please speak to a member of our learning team, or email
