Turn Festival & GIRLS zine

On Saturday we got to chill with the young folk of the BE THE CHANGE group (A group of young activists from around Kent) and run the art area at the TURN Festival.

Situated within a small wooded area we ran a number of arty activities and created a community gallery from participants creations. Prior to the festival I got to meet some of the group and help plan the event. It was great to be a part of something primarily lead by the ideas and passion of young people. In particular I worked with Folkestoner Miranda Beinart Smith to make a mini-zine from her artwork. Miranda has painstakenly drawn a picture of a child from every country in the world and written a short bio for each one. It is an amazing project that took lots of time and research. By taking a selection of her drawings and creating a zine we were able to share her powerful work with the public.

The zine will soon be available for download. Check this page for details.
