On Friday 23 February the Garden Museum hosts its latest Friday Late event in conjunction with the closing weekend of the stunning retrospective exhibition celebrating the life and work of the Antiguan artist, writer and environmentalist Frank Walter.

Co-curated by Goldsmiths, University of London, in addition to cocktails, music and the chance to explore this super exhibition, the evening includes four new interactive responses to the exhibition created by academics and artists from Goldsmiths.

Crocus bags, saka cloth and flour bags: Remaking with discarded textiles. Join in a making activity drawing on the untold crafting traditions of Caribbean women led by textiles researcher Rose Sinclair MBE.

Slipstreaming with Frank Walter: Join staff and students from Goldsmiths’ pioneering Centre for Caribbean and Diaspora Studies for a collaborative, radical writing workshop and installation rooted in the slipstream writing method.

Frank’s Forest: Climate Couriers: Artist and Lecturer Louise Ashcroft leads a participatory workshop inspired by Frank Walter’s works on card and boxes. Participants will be invited to make and decorate a bespoke cardboard box out of old Amazon boxes into which they will place a fallen autumn leaf collected by Louise from one of 40 London streets with names that have historical links to slavery. Participants will be encouraged to return the leaf to its street of origin on the summer solstice.

IRIE! Dance Theatre: The Friday Late event also features a performance of dance and music by students of IRIE! dance theatre, Britain’s leading dance theatre company working in the field of African & Caribbean dance fusion.
