Exploring the positives learned from negative experiences

Visitors are invited to see a display created by young people from Windsor Primary School in Liverpool, which explores how negative experiences can lead to positive outcomes.

Working with Merseyside Youth Association and artist Julie Mitchell, the young people involved have created a series of large scale sculptural crowns, decorating them with jewels and prints to symbolise the power they have gained which has enabled them to break free from adversity and experience positives. The crowns will hang from the ceiling for visitors to see.

Drop in self guided activity linking artworks in the gallery to resilience.

Saturday and Sunday, 14.00-16.00:

The Power to Break Free is a part of the work around the exploration of adverse childhood experiences at Merseyside Youth Association. Further information can be found here.
