Let the Interns Play

poster exhibition-01-01Mario and Helena are two interns who came to St Margaret’s House three months ago. They have been working on several projects during this time. From Friday 26th of May they are going to show some of that work in different locations of the building for 3 days and on Saturday from 5pm come and enjoy the launch of their big project, St. Margaret’s House new interactive fanzine.

An intern can contribute with new ideas and more
