Since 2001, Fusion Arts has been placing artists in local schools to create artworks with children for the famous Cowley Road Carnival Procession. In the run-up to the carnival, artists worked with the children to create colourful costumes and fun songs for the procession.  At the end of the series, the children took part in the carnival procession alongside carnival professionals, and had the opportunity to wear and carry their own creations.

This project was funded by the School Partnerships.
