GAIA X DEEPLISH COMMUNITY CENTRE
Rochdale artist, Rahela Khan, worked with young people from Deeplish to create clay tiles that explore the theme of home and identity.
GAIA X THE PROUD TRUST
We ran weekly visual art sessions throughout October & November with young people from The Proud Trust (LGBTQ+ youth) to explore and respond to the Gaia installation.
We worked with artists Oliver Bishop & Dominic Berry to write poetry and create a series of small globes that reimagine the world, addressing inequalities in a positive and empowering way. Images of the launch event were captured by photographer Lee Baxter.
It is hoped that the project will educate and inspire the visiting public, and also ensure that the LGBTQ+ community is represented throughout the Gaia installation, in turn building confidence and wellbeing for the young people involved.
GAIA X ROCHDALE YOUTH SERVICE: DARNHILL
Young people from Darnhill took their WONDERWALL on tour to Gaia.
We are also supporting Your Trust with the project management for the Gaia visit.
