Great news! Fifteen young people from our Tuned In workshops this summer in Toxteth have just been awarded their Discover Arts awards. Well done to all of them and many thanks to our brilliant team of musicians: Sue & Keith from W&F, Abi, Matt and Mandy from Collective Encounters, and of course the wonderful Julie from Children's services.

Have A Go!

We’ve been inviting foster carers in the Whitehaven and Barrow area to Have a Go! at filmmaking techniques, creative writing, music, drama, singing, photography and animation.

"Bringing together looked after children as a group in this way is unique. It allows them to use the arts explore issues related to being in care in a totally new way, with quite extraordinary results."
