Flourish Arts at The Curve: Grenfell Assistance Centre.

 

ACAVA are extending the Flourish Arts and Wellbeing programme for families directly and indirectly affected by Grenfell Tower fire.

From Wednesday 29 November we will be delivering a series of taster sessions for adults which will be taking place at The Curve, the Grenfell assistance centre providing official services and emotional support for the local community. 
 
Over a period of three weeks, centre users will have the opportunity to take part in screen-printing, mosaic and batik workshops. Participants will be invited to give feedback to us and help shape the timetable of adult art activities for 2018.
 
The Curve is open to any resident directly and indirectly affected by Grenfell Tower fire.

After School Art at The Curve
 
 
Until the end of this term, we are delivering a series of Creative Play sessions for 5-11 year olds accessing the centre on Thursday afternoons.
Facilitated by artist Emily Fuller, the sessions promote play and imagination, exploring different art materials through tactile creative play. If well supported, we will apply for funding to extend this offer into 2018.
 
No need to book, just turn up.
