Tarik Elmoutawakil: ARTY PARTIES

London, UK

Tarik Elmoutawakil is joined by artists Ella Golt, Jacob V Joyce and Rudy Loewe to curate Arty Parties, a new project with the children of Canon Barnett Primary School.

The artists and Artsadmin team will work with the school over multiple terms, using interdisciplinary arts such as dance, performance, music, costume and prop making, to explore the idea of radically refashioning our environments. The theme of Arty Parties is one of world building, and seeing the world through new or different lights. The project empowers the children to be agents of change, taking influence from ancestry, personal and global histories and the possibility of alternative futures. Working with the artists, the children will dream up alternate versions of themselves and our world, and come together to celebrate with very special intergenerational dance parties.

Arty Parties continues our partnership with our neighbours Canon Barnett Primary School, building on projects including Monuments of Tower Hamlets, Playing Up and Look Out, and is our largest collaboration to date.
