A Family Friendly Event: panel discussion and workshop

With Siobhan Davies, Sarah Wigglesworth and Neil Pinder

Listening to young voices: How can schools be spaces to dance about? - Children’s dance and discussion workshop led by Adesola Akinleye

Join us for a unique opportunity to look into the overlaps at play between architecture and children’s learning. We will discuss the impacts that government cuts and current social changes are having on school spaces and our children’s education.

Siobhan Davies has long been fascinated with the impact that space has on learning. In this discussion evening Davies is joined by architect Sarah Wigglesworth, who re-purposed the RIBA award-winning Siobhan Davies Studio in Elephant and Castle, and educator Neil Pinder who teaches architecture at Graveney School and runs the organisation HomeGrown Plus which supports young people from diverse backgrounds in accessing architecture.

Whilst the panel discussion takes place, accompanying children can take part in an accessible and fun choreography and architecture workshop. Led by one of our expert artist facilitators, children will have the opportunity to explore choreography and architecture through movement games and improvisation. 

This event is ideal for families, architects, teachers, educationalists and anyone interested in the impact of movement and space on childhood learning.

If you would like to book your child onto the workshop, please get in touch with or call us on 0207 091 0650 as spaces are limited. 

The building will be open from 4pm and tea and coffee will be provided, so do feel free to come straight from school and spend time here before the event starts.
