    Following a summer where we worked closely with many community artists and organisations we were invited to be involved in the Lightpool Parade! This involved using lanterns from our Winter Festival, a lot of glow sticks, lumidogs (we ran a workshop so you could decorate your pets!) and some lovely young people and their parents as well as our Chair and staff! The parade celebrates the illuminations and runs over half term. Our community development worker also took part in RUSH, which was a multimedia dance production with 120 community members form all over Blackpool who took part over 2 months to produce an amazing show looking at austerity and it's impact on Blackpool and it's people.
  • Creating Civic Change Bid
    September 28, 2018      Film
    Over the last few months, through community chest and consultation, we saw the potential that art based activities provided for the area and were keen to see this grow. We managed to gather a group of local community artists ranging from traditional to movement to dance to music, who were hungry to meet and explore options. It was felt that creating an art's base on Central Drive would be an ideal way to tackle a few of the issues raised through the plan, with this in mind we set about applying for the Creating Civic Change bid, the video was part of our submission. Unfortunately we were not successful BUT keen to keep this idea going and have been applying elsewhere for the relevant funds so watch this space!
