Find Out the FACS

Last week we were one of 9 micro provider art organisations  who put on an event at Derby Dance Centre helping promote art activities for carers and cared for people who are shortly going to be responsible for managing their own wellbeing budget.
It sounds a huge and somewhat daunting task as people don't necessarily know what's out there and available to them.
For our part we ran a simple stencilling workshop and participants got to take away a length of bunting made out of their stencilled piece of work.
We had a really lovely time and met some interesting folks.

International Women's Day 2012

We had a stand again at the International Women's Day. This year it was held at the Assembly Rooms, Derby in the Darwin Suite, and this year we were there on behalf of the CO OP who are supporting this campaign.
With help from a lot of women, some children and yes, a few men..... we made a collage of the campaign poster.
We even had some help from a group of young people from the Hoverla Ukrainian Dance Ensemble.

At the start

The finished collage

Where did March go?

Well this month has fairly whizzed past and we have been busy with various workshops.
We spent a morning of stamping and stencilling with some lovely ladies from the Derbyshire Carers.....
