For Refugee Week 2023, Anna Virabyan, an award winning migrant artist, will lead an art expression workshop focused on the experiences of forced displacement. Anna will firstly share her approach and methods, as well as art-based projects she has undertaken with individuals impacted by forced displacement. After this, participants will be guided to explore the ongoing dialogue between Art and Self through the charcoal or watercolour medium, and be supported to use artistic patterns, shapes, values of tones, free flow techniques, depths, light and shades, and verbal and non-verbal communication to create meaningful artworks.
