We are SO excited to announce a free online creative workshop hosted by none other than the Candid Cancer Collective team themselves! Join Bronte, Kimia & Cait for three accessible creative activities – you can even submit what you make to their zine!
The Candid Cancer Collective is a zine project taking the inspiration out of cancer and bringing real life candid experiences. This project is led and created by Kimia Etemadi, Bronte Palmer and Cait Wilde.
CCC Creative Workshop – Tuesday 22 June, 6-7pm
Join the Candid Cancer Collective on Zoom for a free online workshop. This will be a relaxed space where the CCC team will go through our favourite creative tasks relating to your cancer experience. There will be a writing task, a collage task and a drawing task. These will be suitable for absolute beginners and you can take part in as many of the activities as you’d like to.
We will then go through how pieces can be submitted to our upcoming zine (no pressure though if you’d like to just come along to be creative!).
This workshop will be hosted on Zoom Webinar which is a watch format. The workshop will be live, and you will be able to share comments & questions in the chat function. To book a free space on the session and for more information please visit: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/ccc-creative-workshop-tickets-159247223733

Oh and while you’re here…
