About the Event

We warmly invite families - including those with children with SEND - to drop in for fun, creative activities at Autograph.

Gallery 2 will be set up with green screen technology to create playful films with fantastical digital backdrops. The entire family can get involved in creating props, backdrops and costumes.

This is a drop-in session, come anytime and stay as long as you like. You can also see Sharif Persaud's exhibition in Gallery 1.

Autograph's gallery is accessible and step-free. You can expect a warm welcome from our staff and volunteers before diving into a fun afternoon of art-making and experimentation.
