The workshops were facilitated by a number of Cubitt Education interns and artists: Carali McCall; Giulia Ricci; Pernille Ramfelt; Ginny Jory; Adam Murray; Allison Maletz; Janne Malmros; Emma Kay; Kate Liston; Daniele Genadry; Rachael MacArthur; with tremendous, help, support, and creative input from parents, teachers, office and support staff.
