30 March, 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm
Are you aged 14 to 19? Artist Emma Smith invites you to come and have lunch to hear from special guest speakers, watch short films, and help create a publication that relates to Emma’s exhibition. We want to know who and how people seek to influence you and who you might want to influence in return. Your ideas will help shape what goes into the publication and who we send it to. This event will include the chance to see the Wunderblock exhibition at Freud Museum London, with the artist, which will be used as a starting point for sharing ideas. How do the people around you, the media, or even politicians, try and shape or disguise your opinions and ideas? How would you like others to see you and the things that matter to you? . This event will be co-curated by young people, the artist Emma Smith, and Wunderblock’s curator, Rachel Fleming-Mulford. It will also include films made by young people involved in the Hidden Persuaders’ young people’s filmmaking programme 2018, relating to the idea of ‘brainwashing’ in everyday life.
Open only to 14-19 year olds. FREE but limited spaces – booking required.
Booking for the event includes free entry on the day to the Museum and the ‘Wunderblock’ exhibition (usual price £7 for concessions). Booking also includes a free lunch (please state any dietary needs when booking).
Part of the events series for Wunderblock by Emma Smith, curated by Rachel Fleming-Mulford, and commissioned by Birkbeck, University of London for the Hidden Persuaders Project, funded by the Wellcome Trust Public Engagement Fund.
