‘Boat Race’ Digital Self-Portrait Workshop at Play Builds Communities Day

Join the Docks

‘Boat Race’ Digital Self-Portrait Workshop at Play Builds Communities Day

Come along and create a unique digital self-portrait using an intuitive creative app on iPads, at this fun workshop for all ages.

Playing on the Cockney Rhyming Slang for ‘face’, a selfie photograph taken against the iconic landscapes of The Royal Docks will provide the inspiration for your self-portrait.

Your completed self-portrait will be added to an evolving exhibition at The Silver Building.
Go and find your Boat Race projected on the walls of The Silver Building gallery from 17th – 23rd August.

Boat Race is an opportunity for families to learn new skills together, celebrate the eclectic faces, ‘Boat Races’, of the diverse Royal Docks communities and explore its unique environment.
