They will be sharing their process and findings from participatory movement workshops they facilitated during their experience as a British Council fellow at the 59th International Venice Art Biennale, and the implications they have created on their thinking and work.

Tolu Oshodi is a Nigerian-British visual artist and performer whose practice combines movement, photography & film. She works with photography and film to create emotive work that is rooted in our shared human experience, exploring notions of self, relationships and community. Special interests in her movement practice are based in the navigation and liberation from sexual politics as a Black queer woman.
OSE Public Programme 2022-23
This event is held as part of Open School East’s 2022-23 Associate-led Public Programme. This year’s Associate-led Public Programme responds to themes of social & ecological hybridity, as set out in the Associate’s first term curriculum entitled When The World Looks Back At You: about storytelling, ecology and the weird led by artist Saelia Aparicio. Through explorations of the voice, the body and sensitive connections with natural and man-made networks that unite the world around us, the Associate-led Public Programme looks to and explores creativity and collectivity in green spaces.
This year we’re excited to announce our partnership with Turner Contemporary, who are generously hosting part of the public programme.
Turner Contemporary is one of the UK’s leading art galleries. Founded to celebrate JMW Turner’s connection to Margate in 2001, the David Chipperfield designed gallery opened in 2011. Turner Contemporarys work extends beyond showcasing world-class exhibitions, to driving the social and economic regeneration of Margate and East Kent and transforming lives in one of the most deprived areas of the UK. Since it opened, Turner Contemporary has welcomed over 3.8 million visits, put over £70million back into the Kent economy and connected with thousands of people from the local community through our world class programme.
