As lockdown begins to ease, we want to hear from young people about their experiences and how the last year has affected them. the aim is to create a short film featuring the voices and stories of young people. The conversations will create an uplifting short film that reflects the diversity, resilience and creativity of our city. To find out more and get involved go to the We Are Here page

Together with The Mighty Creatives and The Craft's Council, we are now supporting 5 foodbanks to establish Craft Cupboards - building a campaign and receiving donations to keep supplies topped up and give children access to creative materials.
Our Projects page gives brief details of the bespoke projects we are proud to have supported, helping arts organisations connect with communities in new ways since May 2020.
