The Dash Charity are working on a new creative collaboration with Artist Amelia Pimlott and Norden Farm.
The Dash community will create some stunning artworks during workshops held at Norden Farm to celebrate creativity. Participants will decorate and fill a willow and tissue tree sculpture with colour and life, stories, hopes and dreams.
Dash have provided tutoring and support in a variety of creative arts to local families who have been affected by domestic abuse. The artwork produced forms an exhibition to showcase the stories of survivors, celebrate our Monarch’s 70 years on the throne and raise awareness locally of The Dash Charity and their work.
Dash are proud to be a community group based in the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, a borough which holds so much royal history and of course has provided the place that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II calls home.
