Look Local

- arts for you across the West Midlands -

 

With lockdown finally starting to ease, it's a good time to look at opportunities in your area to get involved in arts & culture, and find something you're skilled at or passionate about.

So we've asked our Virtual Schools to tell us about their arts & cultural offer, and will be sharing these with you over coming weeks - on this page and then in local links.

Can't find your local area yet? See what's already listed in local links. And why not have a look back through all of our creative challenges and try something online?

What does your Virtual School believe that ARTS (music, dance, drama, art, literature, digital, etc) and CULTURE (museums, libraries, historic places of interest etc) offer your young people?

Engaging in the arts can provide a therapeutic medium for creative self expression where young people can feel safe and explore their feelings and past experiences. The arts can give our young people the chance to experience different opportunities and have lots of fun learning along the way.

Describe / list your Virtual School’s local arts and cultural offer

Please describe any particularly effecti​ve or successful partnerships and projects that you currently have/previously have had.

All the Artslink offers have been made available to all of our children looked after.  The Give it a Go events have been very well received especially the Theatre workshop days enabling the carers and siblings to all participate and enjoy.

What local arts events or venues are you personally looking forward to visiting once they open after the latest lockdown?

Warwick Arts Centre - an absolute must!

PLEASE BE CAREFUL!
