What a pleasure it was to spend Saturday afternoon at Brighton’s Jubilee Library with happy band of cartoon drawing, collage sticking, badge creating people joyously taking part in a Young, Queer and Invincible creative drop-in with photographer Lynn Weddle, Photoworks UK and Allsorts Youth Project as part of this year’s City Reads festival. Each and every participant really entered into the spirit of the Young, Queer & Invincible theme and produced some true works of art – and it was such a good humoured occasion too! This was my first ever time as a co-workshop leader so the nerves were jangling. But I needn’t have worried as all the other participants and my lovely co-workers made it a joyful and fabulous occasion. The way everyone gleefully grabbed pens, cameras and scissors was a sight to behold. Thanks to each of you for making the afternoon really special…..and those cakes were pretty good too. Thank you to everyone who made it such a life affirming success. Until next time my drawing, collaging, badgemaking, photo taking super heroes!
