Our community group Unity Does MAATer are inviting young people (ages 9 – 15 years) from the community to join us for a CV-19 Workshop & Discussion.
Join us in person to share your experience of the last 12 months of CV19. We are aware of all the issues faced, including isolation, depression, stigma, racism, home-schooling and everything we are facing right now in 2021.
Come and share your experiences through our four arts workshops:-
Art and crafts:
This workshop facilitated by Bev from Shola Artz. When we ran this event with our Elders they customised bags, treasure boxes and cups, the discussions were humbling, click on the link to hear a snippet. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1055497331531145 Feedback received from the attendees said this workshop helped by reducing feelings of isolation.
With Khadijah Ibrahiim you will learn about the importance of creating your own narrative through the art of poetry writing. Click on the link to hear a snippet of the event last year https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1465093263680146
