Ignite Imaginations provides brilliant, high quality arts activities in areas where there is little opportunity to engage. They aim to create a bespoke, long lasting and inspiring experience. Their mission is “to ignite imaginations by increasing access to high quality creative activities.”
They offer free events and workshops focusing on visual arts and creative writing (including poetry, storytelling, textiles, sculpture, film making, painting, drawing, craft) for all ages and backgrounds. Working in partnership with the community they aim to increase confidence and skill, reduce isolation, promote usage of local spaces and increase pride and ownership over public space. Every project they deliver they aim to leave a legacy through community celebrations, exhibitions, publications or temporary or permanent changes.
Join the team in finding out all about your own local community, using historical documents, photos, film footage, etc. Then work together to produce a piece of art to show what you have discovered. Suitable for all ages, booking required (ring 0114 2686813 to book your place or to find out more)
