Sneinton Bauhaus Project
We have been working in partnership with Renewal Trust to deliver a family engagement programme, bringing quality arts and creative activities to St Ann’s and Sneinton, involving local people in shaping and making art where they live. Our Associate Artist, Charlotte Tupper delivered a series of workshops for children and families in three partner schools, Edale Rise, Sneinton Cof E and William Booth. The workshops were used to create work and recruit families for further activity at the gallery during October half term where families worked with fashion designer, Kiren Passi. Families visited the exhibition and were guided through sketching, pattern-cutting, sewing and costume-making activities.
The workshops culminated in a performance, celebration and an exhibition of the work from the schools and the workshops. In total 416 participants were involved in the programme and 22 family groups took part in the residency at the gallery.
The programme is funded by Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Arts Council England
