On Saturday the 18th of May, NWAMI was able to take part in celebrating the get creative festival of 2019. This festival took place on the week of the 11th to the 19th of May. The week is all about celebrating and encouraging have-a-go creativity, through pop up events all over the UK throughout the week. Take a look at the Get Creative map to see what else was going on https://getcreativeuk.com/!

Our project was themed around Word Exchange, involving members of the public coming to create a display consisting of decorative "Word Art" to encourage and support multicultural integration through language.

NWAMI hopes to encourage and foster an appreciation of each other's language and one another's linguistic background within Colwyn Bay. 

To help support this, participants were invited to share their favourite words, or words that are particularly importance to them in any language they chose and create a 3D model of either the word its self, or a representation of the model. 

The words and models were created through a variety of easily accessible arts and crafts materials such as card, tissue paper, glue sticks newspaper's etc. These were then made into flowers which were arranged in a display to be kept at the Centre for Cultural Engagement.

We hope that this display will continue to grow as more and more participants add to the display and help it to flourish!
