Lalita Bailey, Who are we?
Lalita Bailey’s drawing workshops are structured on creative dialogue. Participants will be asked a series of questions focused on mental wellbeing and life during lockdown. Lalita will respond live to participant’s drawings by creating a composition onto the Draw Hope pavilion, and will also create a digital drawing that will encapsulate participant’s compositions from the various workshops.

Lalita is working collaboratively with students from Luton Primary School.
