Fixing It: The Beauty of Broke

November 21, 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This is an online event.

How can brokenness make us reflect on what is beautiful?

Bring along something broken and celebrate your objects beyond repair by thinking of creative ways to display them, discussing and remembering their usefulness and place in your life, and writing short poems to celebrate both their beauty and their brokenness. All of this will form part of an ongoing installation in the window of 310 New Cross Road.

Sue Mayo is an artist and facilitator with decades of experience in community arts, in particular intergenerational performance practices. She lectures at Goldsmiths, where she co-directs the MA in Applied Theatre.

Please note: It is hoped that this event will take place in-person and socially distanced at the shop, however it is possible it will be moved online. Register below to be kept updated. If this workshop is moved online, you will be sent materials and encouraged to drop your item off at the shop for the evolving installation.

This event will also take place on 15 November between 11:00 and 13:00.

This event is part of ‘Fixing It: Repair as Resistance’ project organised by Goldsmiths, University of London.
