Bounce Theatre x Wandsworth Art is live!
Bounce Theatre is excited to be working with Wandsworth Council to close the ten days of digital Wandsworth Art. Our activities are inspired by StoryClub – a project we formed during lockdown to provide ideas on staying creative at home. As the 10th October is also World Mental Health Day, we are thinking about different activities which are good for our well-being.
BHM ZINE – A StoryClub especially for Wandsworth
Bounce Theatre was delighted to be asked to make a special StoryClub for Wandsworth this month. This issue explores Black History Month. We decided to focus on some of the black British artists shaping our stories and communities with their work since the 1980s. Have a read and make some art inspired by their achievements. Take up creative challenges inspired by famous artists, activists, politicians, and sports stars. Plus, you are invited to design an event to celebrate Black History Month in Wandsworth in the years ahead.
We live in a big, beautiful, and diverse world. Take the S.M.I.L.E challenge, set by artist Adekunle Kay Rufai.
