A heartfelt exhibition by young artists, exploring their experience of family, equality and place.
As more of us are becoming parents, more children are joining our community. This is an opportunity to hear their voice, see the way they experience family, equality, community, love and place.
Come and see the Fair Day children's community large scale painting.
Babies to young people are also welcome to submit individual pieces for exhibition on the theme of family, equality and place. Entries close on Monday 20 February.
If you have a child that would like to be involved we would love to hear from you.
