Reel Access worked with three Birmingham primary schools as part of the Creative Connections programme. The children, aged 4–10, made their own artwork looking at the themes of heritage and identity at school and responding to their visits to Ikon gallery’s exhibitions by Vanley Burke, Fiona Banner, Dinh Q. Lê and Janet Mendelsohn.
The work produced included a sculpture, calendars, postcards, maps and a series of short films.
A weekend showcase of the children’s artwork, curated and promoted by young ambassadors from each school took place at Ikon.
The project was organised by Ikon in collaboration with Arts Connect.
