The project will enable families, children and young people (including those with special needs) living in the Trust's catchment area South of the A13, to experience high quality combined art activities in a fun and stimulating environment.

The range of activities and support provided through the programme will include workshops in:

  • Bare hand Clay Modelling techniques of the Ancient Kingdom of Benin
  • Tie and Dye
  • Storytelling/Drama (traditional and non traditional)
  • Traditional African Music
  • Traditional African Dance

Our aim is to use the arts to build a more active and inclusive community through participation in leisure activities that could help narrow the health gap and at the same time foster positive inter-cultural understanding and community cohesion.
