One of the project's key aims is to make contemporary art more accessible, the exhibition is accompanied by complementary workshops and events. The workshops encourage members of the public to participate actively in art making and the evnts bring in a wider range of arts related subjects including poetry, storytelling and music. Events and workshops draw on local artists and performers who offer art-related activities and cultural experiences to all.
