The Lates: Creativity in Confinement with Fandangoe Kid
Thursday 14 May 18:00-19:00 GMT
Whilst Covid-19 is affecting the world we live in we explore the role of creativity in unprecedented challenging times. We will look at ‘rituals’ for coping with confinement and ways to remove the pressure to be hyper productive in such uncertainty.
We are excited to invite Fandangoe Kid to talk on the subject. She is a London based print artist who makes large scale narrative driven pieces for the public realm and seeks to smash taboos around complex subject matters such as loss, trauma release, mental health and gender.
As a prolific artist and Graphic Designer Fandangoe Kid has created for a wide range of purposes, including installing artwork on a 14m pillar for the 120th anniversary of University of the Arts London, public art at the Southbank Centre for the charity CALM, and an 80 metre floor narrative at City Hall for World Mental Health Day 2019. She also screened her film Into Your Light at the Tate Modern and on the Manhattan Bridge, looking at dancing as a tool for survival following great personal loss. Additionally, she has worked with young people in Hackney and inner city London for over a decade, encouraging young people from all backgrounds to know themselves better through their creative practice.
