Ife Exhibition - Young Peeps

Hello there everybody peeps

Last week I had the pleasure of running a week long creative writing workshop with some young peeps (mainly teenagers) that had signed up to find out more about the "Ife Heads" that had been the subject of a major exhibition at the museum earlier this year.
With one head being permanently on show in the museums Africa gallery. HAd some curators come and break down what their thoughts about the head was, and had the input of someone from Ife (Nigeria) breakdown the culture of Ife and its significance.

It was most interesting - the young peeps kept me on your toes and gave some pretty imaginative written responses which were presented back to the curators and other observers on Friday. Watch this space and when the video footage of the series "Talking Objects" goes online on the British Museum site I'll post a link and you can catch some of the vibe for yourself.
