Since 2001 Fusion has been placing artists in schools to create costumes, banners, puppets and large-scale artworks with children in the run-up to the famous Cowley Road Carnival. Working in partnership with Pegasus Theatre, who match dancers with our artists, we oversee this large-scale project alongside wonderful teachers and support staff at the schools themselves. At the end of the six weeks, the children then take part in the Carnival procession alongside carnival professionals, and have the opportunity to wear and carry their own creations.
