”Tabula Rasa” is an amazing new youth led project based in South Norwood for young people aged 11-19. They are currently looking for volunteers to help run the project and need young people to take part in the workshops.

The whole team that runs and supports the project are between the ages of 22-24. So the project is run by young people for young people! This means young people will always have a say on how to improve the project.

Just found this fantastic brief via Ideastap- it will appeal to all those who love art and drawing!

They are offering a series of five drawing sessions led by Creative Space residents Owen Pomery and Rosie Gainsborough. Each session will cover a classic area of drawing – figure, still life, portrait and urban landscape – with a secondary theme being introduced alongside.

Sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it?
