Over the past week the Creating Balance team have been handing out special limited edition Yellow Tokens to businesses, artists, photographers and anyone who wants to help with our mission. The task is simple if you find or have been given one of these Yellow Tokens - you just need to take them to our Front Desk to take part in a free prize draw, and you could win one of over a 100 prizes all donated by local businesses and the creative community in the city of Portsmouth, UK.
The Yellow Tokens will be available from Wednesday 12 February so please keep a look out for them at Southsea Coffee, All About Tea, bored of Southsea, Head Hairdressing, MAKE Craft Cafe, Pie & Vinyl and Like a Tea Tray in The Sky. You can also find some within the gallery....and you'll also get given one if you spend £10 or more in the aspex Gallery Cafe Bar or shop.
