As part of City of the Unexpected, we were thrilled to work with a group of children from Tanzania who created the most beautiful birds from wood, ankara fabric, beads and found objects. They then developed stories about their birds, which they shared in both English and Swahili, or a wonderful mix of the two.
This was all done in honour of Roald Dahl's links with Tanzania, where he lived during the 1930s and form part of a shared creative and storytelling process between Wales and Tanzania.
These birds are currently on display at the Wales Millennium Centre and will be returning to NTW offices soon. If you have the opportunity, please try to visit them as each bird has a QR code and bitly link attached to it, which will guide you to a fabulous video of the child telling the story of their bird.
Here is an example of one of their fantastic stories:
