Each area will be allocated a lead artist

Each project will run over 4 weeks.

Each areas project will culminate in a fun community event.

The projects are for residents of all ages from the cities Regeneration areas, and the programme offers opportunities to be involved in many different art forms.  While you may find it most convenient to attend workshops/events in your area we encourage and welcome cross over between areas and all sessions can be attended by residents from other regeneration areas.

Projects will happen in:


Northfield & CummingsPark






Each area will have a launch day which will take place a week before the project starts, this will take the form of an ice-cream van/ pop up art workshops.  Get your free ice cream or tea/coffee if a chilly day and learn about the project that is happening is happening in the area.

Listen out for the ice-cream van in your area!
