Mini Activists

An eclectic mix of workshops bringing creativity, fun and accessibility to social activism. Suitable for families, infants and children for the Summer holidays.

Are you looking for fun, creative and alternative child-friendly activities to do over the summer period? Do you need engaging childcare and workspace? Look no further. Impact Hub Birmingham will be hosting a 5 part series of afternoon workshops during the month of August with a focus on activism, community and creativity. Inspired by the revolutionary books A is for Activist and Counting on Community - both beautifully illustrated and written by the talented Innosanto Nagara - we will be facilitating young minds to reflect on their collective values and how these can be exercised through their innate artistry and engineering skills. Expect plenty of crafting, den building, interactive / animated poetry, music and film.
