Friday 30.08.2019 was the private viewing for the St Matthew’s Art show 2019. A project for the St Matthew’s community, for the wider community.
Bringing different sections of the community together in collaboration. This is the 2nd time we are running the event. The previous winners of 2017, now facilitating this project from start to finish.
Access to creative skills and discourse is freedom to do and, to express yourself. To make informed decisions for the right reasons. We want to empower the local makers to organise and implement their own programme for their community.
