Acton-based Descendants, a charity for young people which explores African and Caribbean culture, is organising a creative week at Pitzhanger Manor in Ealing as a half term activity for those aged 6 to 16.
The history and arts-focused charity is aimed at children and young people and explores African and Caribbean culture through art, craft, music, drama and dance.
This year, Descendants celebrates its 30th anniversary and is putting on some special events and returning back to Pitzhanger Manor where it previously hosted activities. The creative project activity is free to attend and Descendants are asking people to book in advance by emailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
Descendents founder Margaret Noel told EALING.NEWS: “Descendants has previously done two exhibitions in the older Pitzhanger building, which were very successful. This year, we are particularly delighted to have this opportunity, in our 30th year, as it will be great to showcase the work of our young people in an exhibition following on from the project.”
Ms Noel added: “Creative expression will be encouraged using a variety of mediums, from journaling to self-portraits, whereby the young people will explore themes of identity, heritage and what makes us who we are. Descendants actively pursues opportunities to delve into this topic with a particular focus on what it means to be of African and Caribbean descent. We look forward to seeing the young people gleaming with pride at what they’ve created and for the local community to visit the upcoming exhibition.”
