Life is full of all sorts of stories, adventures, ideas and experiences. We are made of memories – some distant, some that guide, inspire and motivate us, and many that haven’t yet been made. This week’s challenge invites you to think about the stuff that makes you…you! If you could choose 5 things that tell your story, what would you choose? . Create your own exhibition on our dothinkshare site! Our site for creative activities www.dothinkshare.com has a special place for you to curate your own exhibition. Find the simple instructions here: https://dothinkshare.com/creative-acti…/an-exhibition-of-me/ . Perhaps you want to showcase your art, poetry or photos, or maybe you just want to create a collection of things that mean something to you. If you’re a member of a group, together you may want to choose items which represent you all. You can display up to five items in your gallery – images, movies or words. Give your gallery and each exhibit a title. If you like, write a caption to explain a bit about each one. Want some inspiration?
