Print and design workshops facilitated by two young leaders
Young Leaders Rianna and Halima launched an art initiative with the goal of widening the participation, audience and ownership of contemporary art. Together, the facilitated two community focused workshops, inviting young people from all over to learn beginner arts and craft skills.
The young people that took part each took home with them a physical representation of their newly gained skills in the form of Non-adhesive art books, journals and original art prints. The art each young person produced was also featured in the zero issue of their magazine, Modern Publicity, which doubled as a physical collectible piece of art and was distributed for free at local community centres.
Both Rianna and Halima learned greatly from their experience running the project and would like to run another in the future, next time using their networks to gain further reach and attract more participants.
