In late 2017 the As We Are creative artists workshop series has popped-up with a pop-up in Victoria Park Central, wrapping up the Create + Celebrate project. The Create + Celebrate project has sought to provide inspired opportunities for people with an intellectual disability during the project through a two-sided approach. ‘Create’, a series of 3 different art skill development workshops; photography, animation and relief-printmaking and ‘Celebrate’, a public exhibition and event that showcases new skills and work to the wider community. The result, a contemporary exhibition accessible to new audiences and artists walking confident in their new skills and ready to learn more!
Create + Celebrate is a Community Arts Network Catalyst Arts Funded Project. For more information on Catalyst click here
