This event will be open to 14-19 year olds and their personal tutors only.

This session provides students with a unique opportunity to meet and work with artists Nick Jordan and Jacob Cartwright, exploring their exhibition Cairo: The breaking up of the ice, a multi-media mix of writings, drawing, film and photography. With an introductory tour of the exhibition, students will be involved in hands-on practical activity in response to some of the exhibition’s varied themes, encompassing social, cultural and ecological history; human exploration and romanticism; the past and present; our relationship to a disappearing wilderness, and economic rise and fall.

Led by artists Nick Jordan and Jacob Cartwright
