On Saturday afternoon 16 March , our Light from Africa art therapist Tessa Whyatt and resident artist Chuma Maweni, travelled to Glencairn for an outreach workshop with 72 vulnerable kids and 12 carer’s from the Rainbow Dreams Trust.

IMG_5415The afternoon activities were part of their holiday camp, highlighting the importance of self-esteem, self- respect and taking responsibility for yourself.

Kids ages ranged from 8- 20 years old and were split into 4 groups in which they played ice breaker games.

Every boat will be professionally glazed and fired before being returned to the child to remind them of the special afternoon and their goals of that day.
