Special BAM Transforming Self and World @theLBCOn Thu, 18 May, 2017 - 13:50
At this special Transforming Self and World morning for BAM we will be hearing about a local Buddhist community outreach project developed and led by Tareshvari and Heather Belcher. “Material Lives” was a collaboration between Tower Hamlets College and Jambala and was funded by Globe Community Project. Using games, drama, art, storytelling and other techniques, 13 local muslim women developed language skills so they could discuss and write life stories. These stories were translated into textile artworks and exhibited in a pop up event at Whitechapel Gallery. At the private view the women led creative exercises and gave artists talks about their work.
June Transforming Self and World is an opportunity to see their work and hear the story of a delightful and successful Buddhist community outreach project.
Saturday 24th June, 10am - 1pm. All welcome!
