The event similiar to my shared idea is an Exhibition for children to show their art work , the theme was ‘Inspirational Women’. The exhibition is a culmination of work produced at a series of workshops involving children between the ages of 5-14 years old who worked under the auspices of the Garnethill Parents Association at the Zig Zag Arts based in Garnethill Multicultural Centre in Glascow, Scotland. The theme of the childrens art project was women who inspire them. This included well known women working in Scotland today, women from history and women from the children’s own families. The work was shown in October 2018. The exhibition was held in The Project Cafe, a local café in Glasgow.

The café exists as a community platform for social exchange alongside serving a simple, wholesome vegetarian menu in the city. They host an open- sourced events programme which is supported by the success and profits of the cafe and they hope to provide an inclusive community space that responds to the needs of the community in the Garnethill area. The space is often used for exhibitions. Anyone can apply to use the space.

The Zig Zag Arts group run workshops for the community including ones for children. They include refugees and many multicultural groups. They come under the umbrella of the Garnethill Multicultural Centre.

Garnethill Multicultural Centre is an active Community Centre, serving inclusively the social, educational & welfare needs of Garnethill’s multiple cultures. All for Unity in the Community! They are supported by Glascow City Council Integrated Grants Fund.

The Cafe and the Zig Zag Arts group , together with the Garnethill Multicultural Centre advertised this event on the following online media: Facebook, Facebook groups, Twitter, Messenger, Instagram, Tripadvisor. Facebook is known as the media that reaches the most people and I feel that with the local community getting behind them, this is probably their most effective media. The number of followers on twitter was 1,107, and while this is great , Facebook is still the most used social platform with nearly 2.45 billion monthly active users. The cafes website and Facebook page are clear, easy to read and understand and easy to link to other spaces.

Because there is more than one group that was actually supporting this exhibition the event was really well advertised. The café, the arts group and the multicultural centre all advertised on their own sites and so there was a triple effect. Also they work very closely with other business’ s within their local community and there is great support for each other within a small community.

The idea of giving children and youth a voice and acknowledging them with the use of an exhibition really appeals to me and I think we should be doing more along these lines and in these times they are often a overlooked or forgotten group that really need all the encouragement they can get.
