We have an amazing showcase that will exhibit artwork from the Islington community who attended our flower bashing, Adire tie-dye, and water painting workshops embracing their ‘CULTURAL IDENTITY’. We delivered wellbeing workshops and so much more to support young adults and children through working with a collection of independent creative businesses spanning the African Diaspora.

The event will be well attended by a variety of African communities from gracious black men and women who have positive aspirations for the visibility of the African Diaspora in creative practices, to name few highlights to come.
