- All Welcome
- Free drop-in
A place, a time, a space dedicated to all people from all cultures and backgrounds.
The aim of this public engagement art workshop is to empower the participant, both children and adults, through art making. To touch a deeper level of themselves and their identities, to freely express their feelings through art by using and including within the artworks words from their Mother Tongue. Not only will we learn new words but also new meanings and thus share experiences that can bring unity to a diverse community.
The workshop is dedicated to everyone, no matter their cultural background. Its aim is to bring together people from different nationalities. Through the process of creation it will show participants the common patterns we all share, the importance of discovering other people's cultures, and the importance of including their own identity within the space they are living. Through the acceptance of all the nuances that form our identities and the place we live, will help us to better understand ourselves and others, bringing positive social change along with it.
