Volunteer, Eesha

I got involved with Art At The Heart to develop my art and be involved in the community. However, my experience at the Holi event gave me all of that plus so much more; volunteering alongside Mukesh and Kamaljit helped me flourish by giving me indispensable skills such as time management, leadership, problem-solving. All throughout the event, I was supported by Mukesh and Kamaljit as we created a celebration of the Festival of Colour. There were multiple workshops that we led such as colourful spin art and a massive ribbon weaving that everyone, from the elderly to toddlers, got involved in. The whole team were dedicated creating a memorable experience for our community, and it was amazing that they were bringing the cultural celebration of Holi to the centre of Solihull, and really immersing everyone in this experience. In my opinion, this spirit of community is really reflected in the values of Art At The Heart and is what makes unique as an organisation.
