An exciting opportunity to get involved with a local project – Children’s activity Support

11th December 2019, 12:18pm | By Penny Fisher |

The Fabric of Life project 2 follows on from a similar project delivered through Wiltshire arts partnership. This time the project will be for young people with additional needs and their friends and allies.

The Fabric of Life project will be looking at the history of fashion and how this has enabled people to express and explore issues to do with gender, sexuality and identity over the years. The project will work with lots of different artists and will also work in partnership with Wiltshire museum and heritage service. There will be activities, very much driven by the young people themselves and these could include trips out. The aim is for the young people to ultimately produce an interactive exhibition that could tour Wiltshire museums and heritage centres.

 

The sessions will run across 2.5 hours, once a week at the following locations.

Salisbury (Tuesdays, 6:15-8:45pm)

Trowbridge (Wednesdays 6:15-8:45pm)

Chippenham (Thursdays 6:15-8:45)

Volunteers to choose one of the locations and commit to one of the sessions per week.

 

Activities include supporting the group throughout the project with a variety of activities that will be driven by the young people attending.
