The Italian Community Arts Project (ICAP)

The Italian Community Arts Project (ICAP) is a year-long project including artist-led summer workshops for children aged 6-12 from the Italian Community and further collaboration with all age groups at the annual Italian Festival.
ICAP is led by Pina who wanted to engage in a relaxed way with children, teens, adults and elders about their Italian culture and connections through art-based activities.

This project will inspire a sculpture for the Italian Community which will tour three exhibition spaces in Peterborough – the Town Hall, a Vivacity Arts & Culture venue and the ICA.
