- Culture and identity
- Responding to one’s own surroundings i.e. the city of London
- Large scale migrations
- How art both shapes & responds to changing socio-political backdrops

Join TALKAdoption at its Paint Jam art workshop for adopted young people aged 10-13. Paint your own canvas in Paint Jam’s social-art-studio where everyone gets the chance to make art. Complete with art facilitators on hand to help, an abundance of fun and colourful artist quality materials, introductory exercises, and music to inspire, you will paint a canvas which you get to keep.
You can paint to a theme, or completely flow from the imagination. You will also get the chance to paint a communal canvas all together. Let your inner artist out in this fun, uplifting and freeing art-studio event! No experience required. Refreshments will be provided. Booking essential. For more information email Sophie Sands or call 020 3837 9303
