A 3 week project with the artist Danielle Vaughan She has a social practice that creates platforms for collaboration, to share experiences visually and verbally alongside her in observations of living. In her work we see an artist who selects slices of humanity and sifts them through a playful lens of medicinal humour with an invitation to join in. Her work has featured on Sky TV's 'Portrait Artist of The Year' series and is in permanent collections at Blenheim Palace and Leicester Museum & Art Gallery. She was shortlisted for the Market Harborough Museum's Suffragette Art Fund 2019. She works from her home studio in Leicester, is co-founder of The Woman’s Art Collective as well as co-curator of exhibitions with Leicester Society of Artists.

The sessions will be delivered by the Children and Young People’s Officer, Manjit Garcha and an artist.
