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.

This event is part of our Lunar New Year Weekend at FACT. Discover our full programme of events.

FACT is funded by Arts Council England and Liverpool City Council. This event is supported by Artsformation, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. Artsformation is a research project exploring the intersection between arts, society and technology.
