Make your mark on our community picture at the Dartford Steam Fair on 11th May

Last May, DAN rocked up to the FREE Dartford Steam Fair in Central Park for the first time, bringing with us a black and white image ready for the public to infuse with their creativity and colour – and that they did! After a fun-filled day interacting and engaging with the public, we stood back and admired the results of our creative collaboration…

This year on 11th May in Central Park, we’re back again, with another chance for you to stamp your imagination on our community artwork. Bring kids, grown ups, grannies & grandads dogs, cats, and whomever else you like to this FREE ART EVENT and join us in expressing your artistic response to our not-so-mystery image at the top, which we will unveil fully on social media next week!

As well as our art event, there will be a whole host of fabulous Steam Engines from across British history. Kids of all ages (and especially the grown up ones!) will be mesmerised and wide-eyed at the huge real-life engines, some of which you can explore inside and out. There will be food, entertainment and most of all a lovely community atmosphere.

Come along to this wonderful FREE event on 11th May to Central Park (10am-5pm) and find us in the main marquee!

DAN’s Community Artwork @ Dartford’s Steam Fair

Here are some pics from our event at the Steam Fair in Dartford’s Central Park in May.

We had a lovely time helping people to complete their squares to add to our community painting of the original Trevithick engine, and had fun with both kids and adults alike colouring, painting and sticking with collage!

Thanks to all our wonderful DAN volunteers and everyone who came and got involved.
