Making Connections: Our first weekend of 2017/2018

 

Our 2017/2018 program kicked off this month and saw our participants exploring connections. We connected with one another, connected our heads, our hearts and our hands and looked at our interconnected world, connecting some of the many global justice issues that exist around us.

On the second day of the weekend, we connected our creativity with taking action at the Change-makers’ Creative Fair, hosted by Claire Coughlan and Helen O’ Keeffe from Splattervan.
