During February Half Term 2020 our Young Creatives worked alongside Artist Holly Graham to explore histories of trade, slavery and sugar. Over the week we attended multiple museum tours and also visited the Museum of London Docklands and Thames Side Print Studio where Holly delivered a workshop using the printmaking process sugar lift etching.
On the final day of the project the young people led a series of public facing tours, which they had produced based on the specific objects and stories they had explored over the week.
