Animated discussion during the oral history workshop with individuals from the Yemeni community in London, 2-3 March 2013
Participants were invited to interview one another and share their personal and family stories of migration and integration. A new video work of the resulting interviews can be seen at The Mosaic Rooms during the last few weeks of the Last of the Dictionary Men exhibition, adding voices from the Yemeni community in London to the stories from South Shields.
On Friday 16 November 2012 Exhibition Road will be hosting Creative Quarter, a day which aims to provide insight into the creative industries for 13-19 year olds.
As part of this The Mosaic Rooms will be hosting the session Making art about the world we live in lead by Peter Kennard.
Peter Kennard has worked as an artist since the late 1960s dealing with social and political issues. In this demonstration/discussion, he will show how it is possible to make images that engage with issues of human rights, climate change and poverty. He will talk about how his art has been used as part of anti-war campaigns globally and how it is possible to survive as an artist making work that is not based on selling individual art objects but by finding other ways to disseminate the work into the world. He will discuss his aims as an artist to make work that communicates to a non-specialist general public, especially to young people, and how through harnessing digital technology it is now possible for young people to express their beliefs through visual means.
The Mosaic Rooms, Friday 16th November 2012, 3pm-3.50pm, FREE

We are pleased to announce a daytime programme of lectures to co-incide with our upcoming exhibition From Palestine to Israel, A Photographic Record of Destruction & State Formation 1947-50.
The talks are proposed free of charge to A-Level students studying the Middle East conflict as part of the history curriculum, inviting them to engage with the period from a new, less conventional perspective. The talks aim to explore broader issues such as photography and film as historical document or political narrative, and are therefore also appropriate for art /photography A Level students.
Speakers include Dr Francis Gooding, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, and Michel Khleifi. There will be an opportunity for the students to ask questions and discuss their own responses to the archival images.

We will also be offering free tours of the exhibition outside of the lecture times. Please confirm group visits of more than 15 students. The Mosaic Rooms will provide refreshments for visiting groups.
If you are a teacher interested in bringing a group of students to one of the lectures or arranging a group visit of the exhibition please contact Rachael Hornsby, email@example.com or on 020 7370 9990.
