The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery


Inspired by the artwork by Iraqi Kurdish artist Hiwa K named My father’s colours periods, this Colour My World workshop will start with a tour of the gallery, after which participating kids will get into crafting. They will use clear acetate and colour sharpies to make a coloured film on top of black and white image/collage.

Hiwa K lives and works in Sulaymaniyah, Iraqi Kurdistan. Working with video, performance, and installation, he draws from personal experiences, including family anecdotes, his arts education, and daily encounters and occurrences. Many of his works stress collectivity and participation as part of their development, engaging with and critiquing teaching and learning systems, and exploring how knowledge can be gathered through everyday experience as much as through academic settings.invites kids ages 7-12 to the Power Kids workshop called Colour My World.
