The Summerly Room at The V&A Museum of Childhood
Cambridge Heath Road

– Dr Tessa Whitehouse (QMUL School of English& Drama) will talk about the use of objects in her current Creativeworks funded research project ‘Making Friends’. The project is in partnership with Codasign and Stoke Newington School. Tessa’s workshops include the use of creative technologies in object-exploration and object-making with children in participatory research.
– Dr Carolyn Bloore (Formal Learning Officer, V&A Museum of Childhood) and Madeleine Hoare (Schools Officer, V&A Museum of Childhood) will talk about their use of objects in the primary school teaching sessions that are offered to school groups visiting the museum. They will focus on puppetry.
Do join us to consider these practices and perhaps to share your own experiences of using objects in workshops with children. Please rsvp to: [email protected]
The museum is hosting this discussion as part of its AHRC funded ‘Child in the World’ programme in collaboration with The School of Geography at Queen Mary, The University of London. The evening will be chaired by Lamees Al Mubarak, Collaborative Doctoral Award Researcher.
