In February 2020, I was invited by Norwich Theatre to run a series of workshops in the community of Jenny Lind, Norwich, as part of the Window Wanderland - Love Light Festival. Members of the community made window art for their homes and local shop displays, and local councillors and staff from Norwich Theatre joined in and shared their ideas. Providing an opportunity for the community to get together, these workshops led to an exciting discovery of the talented poets living in the area, who then shared their poems with each other.
As part of the project, I worked with the manager of Relate in Jenny Lind to create a window display.
I made birds to represent the different ways the shop supported its community. A child's drawing of the shop manager then inspired the main design and I worked with the young artist worked to bring her drawing from the page into the window for all to see.
