enJOY arts got spooky making a short horror film with a group of young people as part of the Manchester Summer Arts College 2014! The group gave it their all and worked together to create some really chilling scenes…
The young people took part in drama, visual art, filming and creative writing workshops and also went on tours of the BBC and the Sharp Project. They all achieved their Bronze Arts Award as part of the project – well done to everyone involved!
We’re very pleased to announce that the awesome board game designed by young people on this year’s Manchester Summer Arts College is now on display at the People’s History Museum! It will be there until 10th September, so hurry down and see it while you can – here’s a sneak preview of it in its display case…
Choices and Chances on display at the People’s History Museum!
We’ve been working in collaboration with TIPP and Manchester Youth Offending Service on this year’s Summer Arts College. This year, the young people worked together to design a board game based on their experiences of Manchester – exploring the streets, making choices and taking chances – and Choices and Chances was born! Over the course of three weeks, the young people tried their hand at a variety of different art forms that all fed into the design process and achieved their Bronze Arts Award too. The finished game showcases their original artwork and photography, inspired by places in Manchester that mean something to them. The group also made both a TV and radio advert to publicise their game – check them out on our Facebook page!
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.
