Migration Museum Late – Neighbourhood of Stories

Join Sophie Herxheimer on Thursday 26 July for a special late opening celebrating her Neighbourhood of Stories project, a selection of drawings from which is currently on display at the Migration Museum at The Workshop.

Neighbourhood of Stories is a selection of drawings by Sophie Herxheimer made live using ink and brush in collaboration with members of the public, listening to and drawing stories about food, home, and the journeys we make to get there.

Each story drawing takes about 10-15 minutes to make, and the narrator remains present and engaged during its realisation. Once the ink is dry the narrator is given a same size photocopy of the drawing to take away. Sometimes the process is intense and cathartic and sometimes more mundane, but every story is addressed with the same search for a synthesis between voice and experience, image and text. A search that has tipped Herxheimer further into her own poetry, as well as her own wonderful city.

Sophie will be talking about the project and the drawings on display.
