Humanity – The Outside In Workshop: Home

9 December 2023

10am-12pm

Free admissions

Award-winning arts charity Outside In assists artists encountering significant barriers due to health, disability, social circumstance, or isolation.

About the theme

As part of Outside In’s 2023 National Open Exhibition, Humanity, we are excited to offer this family friendly, creative holiday workshop.

Humanity is the sixth Outside In National, and the first to tour venues across the UK. Showcasing artworks by 80 Outside In artists, the exhibition highlights the vast variety and quality of works produced by artists who encounter barriers to the art world.

Humanity was on view at Sotheby’s in London in January and Project Ability in Glasgow in August and September. As Humanity returns to the home of Outside In, in Brighton and Hove, we reflect on the dual themes of ‘humanity’ and ‘home’ in two creative workshops held alongside the exhibition.

About the workshop 

On 9 December, Outside In artist Julia Fry will run a creative workshop which invites you to play with art materials and make something that feels like home to you.

We all have different experiences of ‘home’. You might like to bring something from your home to help you get in touch with what home means to you. What is home? Is it the home we live in? Is it something that connects us to other people? Is it our environment, the plants and animals around us? Is it this planet, or this universe? What is the feeling of home? Comfort? Pain? Sadness? Joy? Relief? Bliss? Is home where the heart is?

Create your own festive decorations and make something that feels like home to you.

This workshop is drop in. The workshop is family friendly and suitable for all ages and abilities. If you have any access requirements, please get in contact with:

About the artist

Julia Fry adores detail and repetition. You will see this in her work over and over. She likes to think about the meaning of her work once repetition and detail begin to establish themselves. As she adds layers, she begins to see themes emerge reflecting internal and external influences such as processing childhood trauma and her love of natural phenomena and the awe it inspires. Another aspect of her work is creating interactive experiences that take you into another world or show you things from another perspective. You can see more of her work here.
