The Journey Room
As part of a longer-term Early Years partnership project in Greater Manchester, I worked in two children's centres as an artist and 'Creative Collaborator' with children, staff and parents to develop creative spaces for learning. Here, the children were becoming more and more curious to explore the world outside and beyond the walls of their centre.
We were lucky to be given a room which we transformed into a 'journey room'. Here children had space to reflect on experiences they had documented using their own cameras and this effectively became a giant documentation space. The space became like a studio / installation space, filled with different materials and objects which helped them to revisit their experiences outside and also go on imaginative journeys.
