We’re looking forward to starting a new creative arts project with young people in the Sale West area. As part of the project, young people will take part in a variety of creative arts activities and work towards the Bronze Level Arts Award. We’re grateful to Sale West and Ashton Partnership and Trafford GMP for funding this project and look forward to working in partnership with them. Our first taster session for the project will run on Monday 27th January – check out our flyer!
We had a fantastic community celebration event for our Make Do & Mend project at The Hub in Wythenshawe. Loads of young people attended to see their work on display and watch a film about the project. We were very pleased to have local police chief Caroline Hemingway on hand to give an inspiring talk and present the young women with certificates for all their hard work. We also enjoyed an historical buffet of refreshments and some party games from the 1940s and 1980s in keeping with the heritage theme of our project. Well done to all involved and we look forward to working with you again in the future!
enJOY arts are delighted to announce that we have been awarded funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund Young Roots Programme for ‘Make Do & Mend’ – a young women’s creative heritage project, in partnership with the People’s History Museum!
We’ll be working with young women aged 14-21 from across Greater Manchester to explore the ways in which women have coped in times of austerity, using drama, craft and textile work. The project will culminate in a celebration event for International Women’s Day in March 2013, featuring an historical fashion show.
