In a half day workshop led by Joy Lehman, LBS learners discussed and artistically articulated the importance of literacy in their lives. They drew on both personal and broader issues of their life experiences and priorities.
The result was beautiful learner created murals that displayed the role literacy plays in their lives, their families and their communities.
