Commission Us

You might be an educator or a community organisation/group, looking to bring carnival arts, or arts workshops with a world cultured theme, into the community or classroom.

Our work uses the art and culture of carnival and traditional folklore to inspire the next generation.

Storytelling and history play a major part in our work, we offer a range of art-forms associated with world culture

Give your pupils or community the chance to collaborate on a  project that will directly enhance their environment and knowledge of international culture and diversity. Your participants will have the opportunity to make artistic decisions and create with our  experienced artists through a range of specialised workshops and materials. We also offer recycled arts workshops.

We are committed to engage and inspire the participants to produce art that has the power to transform and positively shape the communities/schools  we work with.

 

Mas Camp- (mas- short for masquerade: camp- workshop)

Carnival has a rich global history and culture. Carnival is a global sensation that is celebrated around the world. Every culture has its own unique traditions and way of celebrating.

S.i.A specialises in a range of Carnival workshops catered for early learning to adult Carnival, with a focus on community and intergenerational cohesion.

 

MASK HEADRESS MAKING WORKSHOPS

In this fun-filled educational workshop, children and adults alike will explore the exciting world of mask making, storytelling and history. Participants will each make one or more personalised masks or headdresses out of a variety of colourful materials, and the option of recycled materials. These workshops can be linked to school or organisational curriculums, looking at masks from different countries and cultures, and encouraging children to make their own.
