SUMMER STORYTELLING & CREATIVE WORKSHOP
Can You Change the World?
With Ehsan Abdollahi (illustrator) and Azita Rassi (translator)
Friday 11 August, 10 am - 12 noon
£2 per child | Suitable for ages 6-10 years

A child uses crayons to colour and change the world, making it kinder, more hopeful place. Boredom gives way to play, darkness to light, drought to rain, crying to laughter, and much more. When I Coloured The World, illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi, is a beautiful portrayal of Ahmedreza Ahmadi’s poem about hope and change.

This workshop will explore the poem and its potential to unlock a child’s imagination and act as a springboard for creativity.

Co-hosted by Tiny Owl Publishing and Parasol unit foundation for contemporary art.
