A community arts day in the visitor centre of our local park, running a range of art activities during the day including:
Portrait painting — pairing up people of different cultures/ages/genders to allow them to get to know each other through conversation while they paint or draw each other.
Collaborative art — where different members of the community — of all ages — contribute to one final piece.
