Our fun filled family fun day was spent creating with textiles! Thanks to Ekta Kaul at Ekta Kaul Studio and Dawn Wheels Campion at Wheel Bears for unique, imaginative workshops and impromptu speeches. It was great to hear about their practice as artists to inspire a new generation.
We celebrated the culmination of Our Stories in a celebration exhibition and lunch. Our Stories was a two year project funded by People's Health Trust to bring together individuals who have moved and made Derby their home including migrant and refugee communities in friendly weekly creative sessions. We watched stories in our gallery, enjoyed a inspiring speech from Theresa Kate Hempsall, lovely face painting for kids by Ami Shah and shared food! Thanks to all the 200 people and more who engaged with us during the project and our visitors today for sharing in the enjoyable morning together with us.
