"Simple Acts related activities for children and families, including storytelling and a toy making workshop. Simple Acts and Norwich University of the Arts have started a unique collaboration this year for Celebrating Sanctuary London. Working in partnership with graduating Illustration student Jess Nash, Simple Acts presents two playful workshop ideas that reflect both the importance of childhood, and explores how we might welcome refugees. ‘Welcome’ will be experienced through the act of play in these workshops, where families and children will be able to construct and decorate toys such as German penny toys and refugee camps inspired Recycled Toys, as a gift giving and gift making call to action."
So much fun to do, next one is at the V&A Museum of Childhood on Saturday 21st June, if you’re in London come have a look.
Finally doing a bit more work for my Midnight’s Children project.
'the children green their blood is black unloosed by cutting fingernails it splashes black on walls (of green) as one by one the curling hand lifts children high as sky the sky is black there are no stars the Widow laughs her tongue is green but her teeth are black. And children torn in two in Widow hands which rolling rolling halves of children roll them into little balls the balls are green the night is black.' - Midnight's Children, Salman Rushdie
