Celebrate your Culture
Dagenham housing estate wall transformed into a temporary art gallery. People proudly having their photo taken with their art.
On a burning hot day in July 2018 we were at the Dagfest. Having been commissioned to deliver ‘Create your own masterpiece’ we would engage festival goers on the subject of culture. Liz ,Maite , Neesha and two volunteers spoke to hundreds of residents about what they thought culture was and how they could celebrate their culture by creating their very own piece of art to take home.
Themes that came of the day were similar using affirming words and images of their family, friends
Getting stuck in from when we arrived – it was a busy day of working with what we had to make a wonderful and inviting display to attract the crowds. This activity was so popular that we had people cueing 3 deep to take part.
Situated in the red zone we were busy all day from 12-4pm.
Finally as we prepared to leave a local young girl of a family of 8 children came over with a card.
It reads ‘you are so sweet and lovley xx’
