Leaf and Message …'write a message, write a poem or draw a picture on a paper leaf. These will all be hung on a tree outside the AGA. It’s a way to send a message to passerby in a public forum. This will give youth a voice in their community. It will make people pause and consider a different point of view'. Sculptor, Phil Jones will lead a soapstone carving workshop for local youth with the final works on display at our Launch Party. The completed work - "In A Child's World - A Community Collage" will be on display at the AGA on May 1.
