Project Yemanja

@ VOL 4 ON SEP 27, 2016

"It was really through there workshop of the simple, almost futile, act of making paper flowers that we realized the potential for bringing diverse groups together." 

in Project Yemanja from PechaKucha night Bexhill-on-Sea, Vol. 4, Esther Springett speaks about a fascinating effort that sprung from a seemingly misplaced Brazilian festival in Camden called Santido, which aimed to connect sights, smells, sounds and senses of Brazil to Camden. Coinciding with the Rio Olympics this project centered on water and the act of sending well wishes in the form of paper flowers down rivers and out to sea. Hear the story of how hundreds of these paper flowers we're made in Camden and scenically sailed up the regents canal.
