Members of the public will have an opportunity to get involved in a Horsham community arts project involving young people from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds.
Writing on Walls Project organisers will use Art Is.. Festival week to invite the public to join its team in creating chalk creations on a carpark wall at Horsham Mibus Centre.
The session, from 3.45pm to 5.30pm next Thursday, will incorporate the project theme of ‘a sense of belonging’.
The project, commissioned by Horsham Rural City Council and School Focused Youth Services through Wimmera Uniting Care, has involved weekly school ‘club’ art and writing workshops.
A group of young people aged between nine and 19 has been busy working on poetry and a colourful wall design with Wimmera artist Mars Drum in Army Lane between Thipatiys café and Horsham Disposals.
About half of the participants have lived in refugee camps oversees and their chalk work reflects connections based on ‘where they come from, where they are now and where they are going’.
The project also includes selections of poetry, which will be used in plaques on seats and walls in Horsham shopping precinct.
