Kate DeCiccio

Kate DeCiccio is an artist who reflects community stories through posters. Kate believes that portraits can help to shift narratives and are a great way to collaborate and share stories.

During the protest scene from 4.00 onwards there are expletives shown on screen on some of the posters . You may want to stop the video before this point.

Questions to Ask Children

What change would you like to see in the world and who could you create a portrait of to embody this message?

Why is collaboration important?

Spend 5 minutes working in pairs to note down (in sketchbooks) imagery and words that could be on a poster about your local community.
