Education and Outreach

The Retracing Ribeiro project has delivered an extensive education and community outreach programme tracing Ribeiro’s early life in an India still under the British Empire and his journey to a bomb-damaged Britain in 1950, exploring his experiences both professionally as a painter and personally.

Interactive workshops have been held across London for different age-groups and family groups in collaboration with the V&A, Central Saint Martins, the Burgh House & Hampstead Museum, Rosetta Arts Centre, Bromley by Bow Community Centre and Holborn Community Association.

These workshops have explored Ribeiro’s innovative use of recyclable materials, his cityscapes and his fascination with ‘Heads’ utilising a range of mixed media.

These workshops were facilitated by Creative Director, Emily Phillips, Marsha Ribeiro and the ceramic artist Mürüde Mehmet – who joined us as part of the V&A Ribeiro ‘Community Arts Project’.
