Join us to create a fun group artwork celebrating nature and the city. There will be a bunch of drawing materials, paints and collage materials to enjoy using, and you will be able to create an environment of flowers, birds, and insects along with a community of cut-out people.
You will also be invited to leave ideas, hopes and dreams for a greener city and a greener neighbourhood!
The activities are based around a co-created children’s book authored by Roma children and families. As part of the session, you’ll receive your very own copy of the book to take home with you.
This workshop is designed for all ages.
