03.    Community Grow

“While we celebrate our diversity, what surprises me time and time again as I travel around the constituency is that we are far more united and have far more in common than that which divides us.”

Ceramic Painting Workshop 

At The Great Get Together Festival 2024, we executed the Community Grow pottery painting workshop, which promoted relaxation, creativity, and community engagement in East London. Participants created beautiful designs on pots and tiles that were donated and displayed in local green spaces. Guided ceramic tile painting sessions allowed attendees to express their interpretations of community and their connection to urban nature, forming a collective mosaic that celebrated local art. Between these sessions, large community pots were available for passersby to decorate freely, adding a spontaneous and playful element to the event.

As the art director, illustrator, and workshop facilitator, I directed the artistic vision, created illustrative guides, and led the workshops with our team. This project showcased the power of community art, bringing joy and a sense of connection to all participants. The finished pieces now serve as lasting symbols of community spirit and creativity, brightening public gardens and farms for years to come.
