There will be an exhibition of the artists’ work to stimulate creativity. However, it won’t just be an exhibition, as people will interact with the artist and explore their own creative talents. During the two hours of the workshop, the participants will be invited to make an artwork entitled My view of a better society. They will interpret this in their own ways, but the artists will be on hand to help them with their chosen technique, spreading their seeds of creativity.

Every creation will be photographed, leading to an on-going exhibition, not just of the artists’ work, but the work of the participants.

Who we are:
Lon-art.org is a cultural initiative with the idea of educating people and enriching society through the arts. We aim to achieve positive changes in society through critical thinking, multiculturalism and equality of opportunity.

Our collaborators
To reach and benefit a range of participants, including some from disadvantaged communities, we will be working with a number of organisations:

Layenterprise is a social initiative led by second generation Latin Americans that strives to improve employability skills while at the same time providing opportunities for young people to contribute positively to this society. From the artists they will learn skills that they will be able to use in future projects.

3space would provide the space for the exhibition and workshops.
Refuge in expression will have a mini youth film festival, which will be a prequel to a more developed one in the near future. There will be films and light entertainment with acoustic bands and poets on Sunday 28th.

Do you think a seed of creativity can change our view of the world?

The artists think it can.

And we think it can!

Do you?
