We'd like to say a huge thank you to East Brighton Trust for supporting us to deliver a series of Free creative workshops for residents of East Brighton this Summer. We created a flyer advertising the workshops which was distributed to residents in the East Brighton area via the food bank, lunch club, library, doctors, local shops and by word of mouth. We worked in partnership with Whitehawk Inn and Whitehawk Library as weekly venues for the workshops which ran every Thursday morning during June and July .
Designing the art activities to be inspiring, absorbing and accessible, we were really pleased and amazed that in total we had 36 participants over the 6 weeks who made some fantastic work and from both written and verbal feedback absolutely loved the workshops.
Here's a few photos from the sessions and some feedback
