Write about memory, narrative, unheard voices and community in this drop-in workshop with the artists behind our Refugee Week installation Alter.

The sessions incorporate oral stories from the Southbank Centre’s archive through a series of creative writing tasks and ask you to create new stories for the generations to come.

Alter has been co-commissioned by the Southbank Centre and Counterpoints Arts for the Southbank Centre’s public spaces during Refugee Week 2022.

The work consists of seven interactive, movable sculptures featuring light and sound. As the sculptures are manoeuvred by both performers and the audience, the space of the Southbank Centre is permeated with traces of sound and colour, representing stories of migration.

The piece is created by Paria Moazemi Goodarzi and Francisco Llinas Casas, and was inspired by the rich history of the Southbank Centre and notions of refuge and displacement.
