Please be aware that we will only visit tribes who invite us to. Tribal people should be left alone. The Penan tribe in Borneo and the Yawanawá tribe in the Amazon know members of our team personally and have deep connections with them, they wish to share their culture with us. It is very dangerous for tribes to be contacted who are not in contact.

‘Last Chance to Paint’ aims to run projects that will not only get children engaging through art with the environment, but will also be looking for opportunities to link schools in the countries and tribes that we visit with school children around the world.

We very much hope that we will be able to encourage children from the people and the tribes who invite us to visit to share their music and singing and to enable them to paint and draw their homes, their land, environment and their story to share with schools and families all around the world. Through this process, we hope to build understanding, friendship, connections and respect.

The paintings and drawings will be shared on our World Gallery alongside the work of children from around the world in a collaborative celebration of people and the environment.

The ‘People to People’ aspect of ‘Last Chance to Paint’ offers many potential outcomes and opportunities that we will be exploring and we will update you when we have more details of this but it will naturally form part of our ‘Live’ interactive expeditions.
