Team Imagineers Fuchsia Project
Awards for All application Letter of Support
Artists will be running 8 workshops over 12 months. The workshops involve dance, clay and felting. Participants will learn new skills and share in group dance activity as well as creating their own pieces of work to be exhibited at the Europa Gallery as part of a large scale installation. The Final exhibition in Sutton will celebrate their work, bring the groups and a wider public audience together. At the private view we will run workshops that the public can benefit from.
Each workshop starts with Biodanza, a series of exercises and moves that aim to promote self-esteem, the joy of life and the expression of emotions. This will be followed by working with natural materials to reinforce tactile senses and connection with nature through the use of clay and pure merino wool and silk fibres. These group sessions work to strengthen friendships, restore connections between people and aim to aid in the expression of the individual’s authentic identity.
