Creative Learning

The Mosaic Rooms understands that meaningful projects are a result of long standing and trusting partnerships. We know that high quality creative learning projects can deliver unique and powerful opportunities for connection and education. Therefore all of our creative learning projects are developed in partnership with the local communities around the gallery, including children and families, adults, young refugees and secondary schools. We offer commissions, projects, workshops, talks and tours online and in person. Our creative learning programme is artist led, often by creatives from the North Africa and Middle East regions or those from the global majority.

If you would like to find out more about our creative learning work please email learning@mosaicrooms.org.

Young People

The Mosaic Rooms deliver projects in dialogue with young people local to the gallery. We aim for each project to be useful to and compassionate towards, the people who join us and take part.

IntoUniversity Arts Exploration Mentorship

In Spring 2022 we partnered with IntoUniversity to support young people with an interest in the Arts. This support included a visit to The Mosaic Rooms, a creative session with professional artist Aya Haidar, and career support and mentorship from the team.

IntoUniversity provides local learning centres where young people are inspired to achieve. At each local centre IntoUniversity offers an innovative programme that supports young people to attain either a university place or another chosen aspiration. Khadija Saye Arts at IntoUniversity continues the work of IntoUniversity with a focus on encouraging and supporting young people with an interest in the Arts.

The Mosaic Rooms Young Collective: Anatomy of a World

The Mosaic Rooms Young Collective invites young refugees to engage with the visual arts and learn new ways to consider, discuss and produce work as a collective. In autumn 2022 the group will work with artist Nia Fekri to take on a multidisciplinary approach in collaborative storytelling. Through speculative exercises, the participants are invited to create interweaving narratives, intersecting worlds and hybrid characters. The collective will visit other London cultural organisations and receive guidance and support on routes to further knowledge and education from IntoUniversity. The project will also include a paid opportunity to organise the public launch of the project at The Mosaic Rooms later this year. This is a partnership project with New Citizen’s Gateway.

Ikhtiar / Choice

In autumn 2021 we hosted a collaboration with young people from IntoUniversity and New Citizen’s Gateway in a project led by artists Zahra Tehrani and Nia Fekri. Find out more about their project Ikhtiar / Choice.

Adults

What Grows Wild

We are piloting sessions with adults from Dalgarno Trust which celebrate art and herbalism, healing and repair. These sessions are led by facilitator Rasheeqa Ahmad from Hedge Herbs and will take place both at The Mosaic Rooms and Chelsea Physic Garden. Find out more about this project here.

We welcome adults from local community based groups for tailored, accessible exhibition tours. If your organisation wants to visit us, please contact learning@mosaicrooms.org.
