Together children and parents will construct a family portrait with photographer Anita McKenzie based on a chosen item. Once your portrait has been taken, historian and writer Ayshah Johnston will guide you through creating an ‘extended caption’ about your family and the way you have composed your portrait.
Choose ONE small to medium item from your home that conveys something important about your family or family history. Your item must be easy to transport and can include, for example a photograph, costume or clothing, a book, an ornament, a toy, a musical instrument or another item.
This workshop is an opportunity for your child to develop their spatial awareness, negotiating skills and make informed choices through speaking, listening and writing.
Some of the work created will be showcased on the Black Cultural Archive website.
Children must be 4-11 years old and accompanied by an adult
A maximum of 4 people per family
No camera required
