Africa Oyé has two amazing musicians travelling to the UK, Valérie Ekoumé and Guy Nwogang, who will be delivering schools workshops. They will engage pupils in fun, educational activity, including:
  • learning a percussion rhythm from Cameroon
  • singing and dance
  • learning about another culture and style of music
There is a strong focus on rhythms and singing, which Valérie and Guy promote as a strong and positive message in a spirit of togetherness. We are hoping to put together small performances with the pupils at the school after the workshops. The workshops are great for communication, wellbeing, music, language and maths (they will be tailored for age and difficulties levels). To book a workshop, please email rebecca@africaoye.com

We know January feels like the longest month of the year, but with Bluecoat's free family weekend you won't have to spend a penny to entertain your little artists. Join us Saturday 25 / Sunday 26 1-4pm where we’ll be taking inspiration from our latest exhibition, It’s My Pleasure to Participate, with a carousel of child-friendly activities inspired by Alexis Teplin’s various artworks. On Sat 25, join our artist in residence Emily Motto for a fun creative workshop inspired by her current work in her studio! Build a maze-like structure, using lots of found and recycled materials to build walls and pathways together. This follows on from The Obstacle Course which she developed with communities at Contemporary Sculpture Fulmer, and explorations in mark-making through spaces. On Sun 26, celebrate Chinese New Year and make your own patchwork lanterns inspired by Alexis Teplin's work in our gallery.
