SOUTHBANK CENTRE - FESTIVAL OF LOVE

For 6 weeks of summer we carried out an artist's residency, entitled Happiness Is Handmade, at the Southbank Centre in London for their Festival of Love - centred around the compassion and peaceful actions of Nelson Mandela.  

 

We carried out lots of fun, loving and mindful creative activities for children and their families that included making Love Bugs with loving messages attached to be gifted to strangers, designing a planet with all the things that we think it needs to make it a spectacular place to live, and stencilling bags with phrases like 'Kindness Is Cool' in exchange for writing a letter to a child in hospital.
