Shout out to all LGBTQ+ young people aged 16-25!

Crown Your Hero Family Workshop

Saturday 6th May 11am-4pm in Duke of York Square
Public Admission is Free

Join WOM Collective artists Apparan and Mowcka for an alternative coronation ceremony, to crown your own personal hero! Crowns are an important part of graffiti culture, as they symbolise a writer or artist being at the top of their game.

The artists will show you how to create an image of someone or something important in your life, maybe a person, a pet, a toy or even a sweet treat, and then finish it off with a graffiti crown so you have a coronation day memento to bring home.
