For Outside In, Magic Me brought together Y4 children from Clara Grant Primary School and older people in the local community over ten weeks at the Linc Centre (part of Poplar Harca). Working with storyteller, Surya Turner, and visual artist, Ben Connors, the group exchanged stories and shared experiences of home. They looked at what it means to be ‘at home’ in the place you live; both indoors and out! Together they explored how to create storyboards, create comic strips and write poetry. Their artworks and poetry were brought to life in a comic book poster.
