with your name, or confirm your attendance on our Facebook page, where you can also see our workshop programme and all our updates! (Please note that only guests who let us know in advance will have access to the exhibition).


There will be an exhibition of the artists’ work to stimulate creativity. However, it won’t just be an exhibition, as people will interact with the artist and explore their own creative talents. During the two-hour workshop, the participants will be invited to make an artwork entitled ‘My View of a Better Society’. They will interpret this in their own ways, but the artists will be on hand to help them with their chosen technique, spreading their seeds of creativity.

Every creation will be photographed, leading to an on-going exhibition, not just of the artists’ work, but the work of the participants as well.

Our collaborators

To reach and benefit a range of participants, including some from disadvantaged communities, we will be working with a number of organisations:

3space will provide the space for the exhibition and workshops.

Refuge In Expression will have a mini youth film festival, which will be a prequel to a more developed one in the near future. There will be films and light entertainment with acoustic bands and poets on Sunday 28th.

Can a seed of creativity change our view of the world?

The artists think it can.

And we think it can!

Do you?
