Art & Culture

Nomad

The Royal Docks Team have invited world-renowned street-artist Mohammed Ali MBE to bring his art installation ‘Nomad’ to the Factory Project in North Woolwich this February. He is known for creating art that celebrates themes of immigrant narratives as well as reflections of faith in a modern society. He has created an intimate tent structure, inviting the public to reflect their most personal thoughts and prayers.

Upon entering a calming and peaceful space within the tent, the public are greeted by a host who guides participants through a series of thought-provoking questions about ‘faith’. They are invited to either scribe their prayers or record to camera. These documentations will contribute to a growing collections of prayers that are being collected by the artist. Nomad provides a unique opportunity for us to collectively reflect on our understanding of faith.

The Nomad tent has been hosted in other cities, but now the installation comes to London for the first time. Newham residents will be the first to be part of a unique opportunity to share their prayers and hopes, as well as to see the intimate prayers of others that have been collected previously.

Communities from all backgrounds and faiths are encouraged to attend and interact with the installation.

Booking is not required, free to attend between times listed.

Supported by the Royal Docks Team, The Factory Project and Arts Council England.
