Tate Exchange, Blavatnik Building, Level 5, Tate Modern, Bankside, SE1 9TG

You are invited to join Making Suburban Faith for an exciting day and evening of workshops, installations and screenings exploring the creativity of everyday religion on Friday 18th May 2018. The event will take place at the Tate Modern as part of the Tate Exchange programme curated by Royal Holloway’s Centre for GeoHumanities.

Focusing on architectures, material cultures, rituals, music and performance, this day will involve collaborative co-production with artists, cultural geographers and local faith groups from Ealing, West London.

Drop into creative workshops and activities running in parallel throughout the day; join an architecture workshop designing a new religious building, contribute to embroidery in our Fabric of Faith installation, learn traditional Hindu flower garland making, design a kite for our kite festival, add a contribution to a book of recipes that evoke spiritual memories or learn to rap, sing and chant in our sacred music performance evening workshops. Please come along!
