Little Italy East London
Community group, ongoing since 2015
In spring 2015 Lopez founded Little Italy, a community group for bilingual families in London; since then she has been coordinating and delivering, alogside other creative mamas, under 5s activities where children play in an Italian speaking setting. Through storytelling, music, art&craft and dance we are educating young children to express themselves and interact with others in Italian.
Over the years the group has been steadily growing, friendships amongst participants have been consolidating and the emphasis has naturally moved towards socialising and celebrating together, adults and children as big extended family, rather than delivering a play session tailored only for kids.
Even the organisation's format have become more and more a collective effort where local mamas put their talents at use to co create informal events of all sorts; from walks in the forest to nights out for parents only.
