Art Summer School for Hackney Youth Offending Team

In 2007 Diversity Art Forum enabled the Hackney Youth Offending Team to work towards their Art Awards at a summer school in July and August.

The Art Awards is set up to help young people to develop their creative skills by gaining bronze, silver and gold awards. The summer school organised by Charmaine Holder at the University of East London enabled 10 people to gain their bronze awards. The summer school involved these people designing their own images and text for t-shirts, the text was turned into poetry and then added to music.
