DISTANCE CREATES… Home-Based Programme for 9-12 year olds with long-term health conditions
Over the course of this six week programme your child will receive weekly activities that encourage creativity and connect participants with other children across the country who have similar life experiences.
Join artist Ciara Harrison as we look at the weird and the wonderful that surrounds us everyday. We’ll use our homes to envision new worlds, re-create masterpieces by the world’s greatest artists, invent hilarious “house rules” for our families, and pen our own surreal poems. Expect to laugh, learn and connect with others through surprise postal drops and penpal collaborations.
