Think outside the box

There will be loads of workshops and activities for kids at Uxbridge these school holidays.









Out of the box is a year-long project which has been funded by Creative Community allowing Uxbridge to work with local installation artist Lucy Olcese to deliver four interactive artworks over the school holidays.

The project was launched over the Easter holidays with the Uxbridge Balloon room which captured the imagination of young and old, with record numbers through the door experiencing the fun and enjoyment of the installation.

“We are excited to offer our next creative experience which is fully immersive and multi- sensory. This time we are creating a dark room and you will have to follow the dots which will reveal messages and thoughts left by the community,” says Ashley Grogan, event manager Uxbridge Arts and Culture.

“Come and be part of the Installation and help build the picture of our community from Tuesday October 2 to Saturday October 13, 10am-4pm.”
