LINK 2015 - Success!
KRAN students meet Adam Chodzko
Canterbury Festival celebrates LINK 2015 project with Kent Refugee Action Network
Each year the Canterbury Festival run a project called LINK. This year our link partnership was built with the Kent Refugee Action Network based in Canterbury.
Students at KRAN were keen to obtain Arts Awards and, as an Arts Award Supporter, the Festival were keen to enable delivery of this request. A project was therefore constructed linking KRAN students with Canterbury Christ Church University's Sidney Cooper Gallery, and artist Adam Chodzko whose works are appearing there during the Festival.
The students took part in several workshops with Adam, and the resulting artwork will be on display at the Sidney Cooper Gallery next to Adam Chodzko's works from the 16 October - 21 November.
The 10 students who took part in the project have now achieved their Arts Award Bronze certificates, thanks to Adam's direction and the support of Canterbury Christ Church University.
