On a hot summer day, Our Living Art Festival marked the end of the arts programme for Chobham Manor. Taking place on Saturday 26th August, we celebrated an afternoon packed with free art workshops, dance performances and music entertainment. More than 3,000 people from the local community and further afield joined in the fun at Timber Lodge Café in Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park.
With mandalas and mask making, drawing classes, photography workshops, Indian and street dance lessons and two special exhibitions – Stratford Living and Bird Box Avenue – there were plenty of activities for everyone to enjoy.
The event saw out in style the series of 46 free workshops that Chobham Manor LLP made available over the past six months to all its new residents. This successful programme has given over 500 people the opportunity to meet new neighbours from the community as well as try out painting, drawing, clay shaping, drumming and bird box making.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the activities and provided feedback to explore future opportunities here at Chobham Manor.
