Manchester Summer Arts College

enJOY arts spent the last three weeks of August running a Summer Arts College for Manchester Youth Offending Service in conjunction with TIPP.

A group of 10 young people took part in drama, music and visual art workshops and each gained a Bronze Level Arts Award for their efforts. It was great to see the group so inspired and motivated by the opportunity to explore their own creativity – several of them are keen to pursue their Silver Award next!

A big well done to all those involved and particular thanks to the team at Manchester YOS, TIPP and the staff at the Inspire Centre in Levenshulme, where the project took place.
