Explore the history of multiculturalism in the Capital

Picture of previous event

Gillett Square in Dalston is playing host to a series of fun and informational arts-based events and activities which will tell the story of multiculturalism in the Capital.

Children and young people are invited to the ‘Untold Story of Multiculturalism’, a series of exciting, free interactive workshops that are taking place throughout the summer holidays in Dalston’s Gillett Square.

The series of two hour creative workshops have been designed to encourage young people to think differently about the positive contribution of multiculturalism throughout history and unique cultural footstep made in the Capital. Workshop themes range from ‘The African Roman Who Ruled England’ to ‘The Lost Black Tudors’ and ‘Multicultural Life in the Victorian Era’.

The workshops will offer a range of arts-based activities such as painting, drawing, short films, creative writing, storytelling, question and answer sessions and T-shirt printing with a chance to win an mp3 player and iTune vouchers for the winning design.

These free arts-based workshops in Dalston’s Gillett Square are a great resource for children and young people to find out more about the history of multiculturalism in the Capital. The workshops will explore how different cultures throughout history have contributed to making the Capital one of the most diverse, exciting and above all, successful Cities in the world. I would like to encourage all young people across Hackney to take part in the workshops this summer.
