LONDON.- The Mosaic Rooms has commissioned RESOLVE Collective for the 2023 Family Artist and Outdoor Play commission.

RESOLVE Collective will design with and for young people in our local area. The purpose of this project is to animate childrens’ understanding of solidarity through play with a fun, interactive and evolving play structure that will be erected in The Mosaic Rooms’ garden.

In continuing our collaboration with Earl’s Court Youth Club we have organised a series of creative workshops which will shape the outdoor play commission. The new, co-produced work will manifest in a semi-permanent installation that uses experimental and radical play to explore concepts and practices of solidarity for a variety of communities and social causes in the UK and internationally. A launch event and three public family workshops will further activate the commission in The Mosaic Rooms’ garden. Throughout summer 2023, the installation will grow and evolve, changing through play. Our audiences will create and change the Tools for Solidarity installation through their interactions, helping each other to understand what tools and exchanges are needed in our community, to organise, empathise, and practice solidarity with various causes.

Other partners in the project will contribute to devising self-led play guides for the Tools installation through public sessions. These ‘lesson plans’ invite partners and participants to reflect on ‘solidarity’ and what this means for them. These reflections will center children’s creative language, and will be reinterpreted spatially, activating the garden as a site of making and learning.

In May 2023, RESOLVE Collective delivered schools workshops at the Education Unit at A.M. Qattan Foundation in Palestine. These sessions will created a legacy of learning which will be continued by the schools and presented later in 2023. The visit will also inform their commission at The Mosaic Rooms by connecting to international Tools for Solidarity.

In the spirit of solidarity, throughout July and August 2023 The Mosaic Rooms interior spaces will be used for collective organising. Artists, organisations, collectives, and activist groups working at the intersection of culture, social justice, ecology and welfare are invited to use our spaces to informally organise, share and test their ideas in closed sessions.

RESOLVE Collective is an interdisciplinary design collective that combines architecture, engineering, technology and art to address social challenges. They have delivered numerous projects, workshops, publications, and talks in the UK and across Europe, all of which look toward realising just and equitable visions of change in our built environment. They have developed projects, exhibitions and residencies including at Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt, Berlin; London Design Festival in Brixton; They currently have a solo exhibition at Barbican’s Curve Gallery and have presented shows at Serpentine Gallery, Wellcome Collection, CCA Brighton, De La Warr Pavilion, Peckham Platform, S1 Art Space; V&A East.
