Longitudinal Dialogues is a project developed by The Line in London that takes the project’s location on the Greenwich Meridian as a starting point for global cultural exchange. The inaugural project, co-curated with Arup Phase 2, explores the role of art in public space through a new commission by Ghanaian artist Serge Attukwei Clottey. The British Council’s International Collaboration Grant is supporting collaboration with Foundation for Contemporary Art – Ghana to connect six primary schools in London and six primary schools in Accra through workshops and creative activities inspired by Clottey’s practice. These include learning resources developed with experts from Arup that focus on issues including the impact of ocean waste on marine life and living plastic-free. The schools programme will seek to present urgent and innovative responses to global issues including migration, water supply and climate change – engaging young people who have the agency to engender positive change in the future. Clottey’s new commission has been developed following a research residency at Royal Museums Greenwich and an online exhibition of the schools’ work will be launched to coincide with the launch of Clottey’s work in May 2022.
