Flourish: Breathe

North Kensington
2022 - 2023
Flourish: Breathe is a new strand of our Flourish programme which provides free trips out of London for families in North Kensington who would like to escape the city and engage in creative activities in new spaces.

Flourish: Breathe will consist of three out of London trips between August 2022 and April 2023. Families will visit creative venues alongside practicing contemporary artists and engage in fun activities while exploring a new venue. The trips are free of charge and we will offer a minibus to all venues.

Spaces on the trips are limited, so we will be allocating places according to a criteria. You must be a resident of Kensington and Chelsea to participate, and families with children who live and/or study in North Kensington will be prioritised. We will also be looking at other factors such as eligibility for free school meals, school and housing situation.


Upcoming trips:

Trip 1 – Summer holidays
Venue
: Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village

Watts Gallery – Artists’ Village is a fantastic location for exploration and we’ll take advantage of it by scavenging for materials that will help us to create texture in the main activity of the day: making terracotta beads and memory boards.

Artist: Flora Duley
Date: Thursday 4 August

Trip 2 – October half term TBC
Trip 3 – Easter holidays TBC
