We are delighted to invite you to a special children’s workshop at the Parasol Unit with Ehsan Abdollahi!
The illustrator of When I Coloured In the World and A Bottle of Happiness made headlines recently when his visa application was declined, denying him the opportunity to appear at Edinburgh International Book Festival. After an overwhelming surge of public support and media coverage in the Guardian and The Bookseller, this refusal was overturned, enabling him to visit the UK as planned.
In these creative workshops for children Ehsan will explore When I Coloured In the World – a beautiful portrayal of Ahmedreza Ahmadi’s poem about hope and change. A child uses crayons to colour and change the world, making it a kinder, more hopeful place. Boredom gives way to play, darkness to light, drought to rain, crying to laughter, and much more. The workshops will explore the themes in the poem and its potential to unlock a child’s imagination and act as a springboard for creativity.
9 August 2017, 10am – 12pm
11 August 2017, 10am – 12pm
£2 admission. For tickets please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
