Youth Board member, Janah talks about the subject of Arts in Education and the work the Without Walls event did to make change in education.discover more >
Hello! I am Samantha a Leicester-based Illustrator working with The Mighty Creatives on their YEF programme, I may also be recognised by the TMC youth board and Without Walls Exhibition.
We are currently going through a time in society when inflation is pushing vulnerable children into poverty with the current living crisis. Therefore, I have centred my project around helping children in need, I am curating a non-fiction 6 – 10 years old children’s book, to be given out to disadvantaged children in Leicester.
So, a little more about the book, it is going to be a 34-page picture book, exploring Dinosaurs that lived in England & Wales during the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. The non-fiction narrative will be an informative fun book, telling interesting facts and showing how to say these complicated Dinosaur names. Steve Brussate a Palaeontologist and Professor at the University of Edinburgh, Dinosaur enthusiast and writer with the bestseller – The Rise and Fall of the Dinosaurs.
I need your help, to make a real difference. By supporting this project, you are giving to vulnerable children during this living crisis; each book will cost £2.50 to print and deliver. Therefore, whatever you can give will make an impact. The books will be given out to Leicester-based primary schools with the connections of The Mighty Creatives and The City Classroom.
I have attached the GoFundMe link below, also follow me @TheMightyDinosaurs on Tiktok to see behind the scenes and learn some cool Dinosaur facts.
