Are you passionate about or identify as part of Refugees & Asylum Seekers?
Do you live, work or play in Manningham?
We’d love you to join one of the community engagement design workshops lead by multi award winning artist Katherine Gailer.
Three different themes are being explored:
- Social Justice & Equity,
- Sustainability & the Environment or
- Refugees & Asylum Seekers?
What to expect in the workshops?
- Workshops consist of a series of exercises that allow participants to explore their individual voice and ideas, followed by sharing exercises where participants negotiate their ideas to find a collective voice
- The exercises ignite participant’s creative self and fosters a constant exchange of ideas
- By the end of the sessions the group will have one statement and a clear vision of the visual narrative of the mural.
