Saturday 18 August 2-5pm
A selection of images from our marvellous Arts Picnic on Islington Green this year. Lucy Steggals and Ania Bas have been working with participants in the Saturday Socials programme in monthly workshops at Cubitt or through the Home Library Service at sheltered accommodation settings in the borough.
With these groups Lucy and Ania have been developing ideas around future spaces in Islington. They co-designed some making and drawing activities to share and invite ideas from the general public passing through Islington Green.
