THE COLOUR CHEMISTS WORKSHOP FOR KIDS AGE 5-12

Sep 17 2017 11:00 - 12:30

Bold Tendencies, 7-10, SE15 4TG London


Come and join artists from Bold Tendencies and musicians from The Multi-Story Orchestra for this free workshop!

Together, we’ll explore what happens when we play with colour and engage it through all our senses: how might we taste, smell and hear colour?Join horn player Jonathan Farey and viola player Jennifer Coombes in our ‘colour laboratory’ to experiment with hearing colour! You’ll have the chance to create your very own ‘colour score’ as well as creating new sounds and music inspired by colour.

This workshop is part of the new MY MUSEUM on-site exhibition The Colour Chemists. The Colour Chemists is inspired by hi boo i love you, Bold Tendencies’ iconic pink staircase entrance to the site by the artist Simon Whybray.

MY MUSEUM is a project run by Bold Tendencies which teaches primary schoolchildren how to create and direct their own museum exhibitions. This year’s on-site exhibition has been realised in collaboration with students from local schools Kender Primary, Dulwich Hamlet and St John’s and St Clements.

The Multi-Story Orchestra presents extraordinary performances in unexpected settings. They have worked in partnership with Bold Tendencies since 2011, performing a series of orchestral and chamber concerts across the summer.
