Based upon the story of a carpet found in a faraway country, Persia, a storytelling session will be followed by participants creating stories based upon their own personal experience. The carpet will become everyone’s common space.


Session 1: With paints and coloured pencils, participants will draw whatever they like, such as an anecdote, an object, an everyday activity, or a secret, and once these are finished, the drawings will be shared among the group.

Session 2: On a giant rug, each participating child will draw, taking turns. Once completed there will be a common space for everyone.
