Mini Makers is our weekly art club for under 5s and their grown-ups to get creative and enjoy quality time together!

The minis get the chance to chatter and play with other children their age whilst parents get a brew and don’t have to clean up the mess - it’s win-win!

〰️Taking Shape Artist Development 〰️

Over the last few weeks our artists have taken part in a variety of workshops, all of which go towards helping them to develop their arts practice with communities. The programme is designed to provide each artist with a 'toolkit' of training which helps them to go out into their communities feeling fully prepared to take on their own projects 💪

Here's what we've done so far:

✨ An introduction to socially engaged practice with producer, Debbie Chan
✨ Safeguarding training with TiPP
✨ First aid training
✨ Visit to The Portland Inn Project to see their amazing work
✨ Creative Evaluation training with The Audience Agency
..and we're only halfway through! 🥳🎨

Taking Shape is supported with funding from Arts Council England, Down to Earth and Wigan Council.

Last Thursday we held our first Everyday Creatives Masterclass with the fantastic Northern Heart Films ❤️

Our participants had the pleasure of hearing Natasha and Scott talk about their filmmaking journey and watching several of their short films, including 'Joy Uncensored' as well as then getting the chance to have a go themselves by putting together a bank of questions and interviewing Natasha and, very special guest, Joy! ✨

The biggest thank you to Northern Heart Films for putting together such an inspiring talk and masterclass for the next generation of filmmakers! 🎥

Next up, we're excited to be welcoming writer and performer, Louise Fazackerley to the Everyday Creatives Masterclasses!

We all know emails can get away from us sometimes (be honest, how many unread ones do you have?!) 🙋📧

So to keep in touch with our community we have set up our own Everyday Community Broadcast on WhatsApp to share info about what’s coming up, in a more bitesize, simple way. 📲✨

The important bit about broadcasts:

📍 No personal details about members of the Broadcast are visible to other members. This includes your phone number.

📍 Only Everyday Team members can see who is in the group and will be the only ones sending the Broadcasts.

📍 We promise to keep Broadcasts to a minimum! No spam here!

POV Mini Makers is your favourite time of the week! 🎨✨🙌

Mini Makers is our weekly art club for under 5s and their grown-ups to get creative and enjoy quality time together!

The minis get the chance to chatter and play with other children their age whilst parents get a brew and don’t have to clean up the mess - it’s win-win!

🗓️ Every Wednesday, 10am - 11am
📍 The community room, The Old Courts
