A very successful pilot of this event was held in 2011 working in Partnership with Alec Hunter Humanities College and sponsored by Greenfields Community Housing, Wow it’s Clean and Originals created 4 U.
Work from this event was on display in Braintree Library in the July.
Hip Ops & Hoodies
The Hip Ops & Hoodies event is a multi-generational day where young people come together to work with people over 60. They get to work in teams, discuss the stereotypes of each generation and express what they think themselves without it being personal through a comment box.
This is a full day event which leads to the teams working on pieces of artwork to show the generation gap and what they have discovered through play and discussion. A huge focus of this day is around mutual respect. Where possible an exhibition of the work is held locally.
To book a Hip Ops & Hoodies event in your area or school email firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call.
We seek out funding/sponsorship/a small contribution from the school to pay for the materials used.
