The Creative Writing sessions at The Writer's Block, have been very successful with four young people contributing to the third published anthology! Short stories, poems and the start of a novel were written over the course of two days with guidance from writer Jane Pugh and support from the wonderful Kernow Education Arts Partnership (KEAP).
Band Fever - Music For Youth Festival
Across an intensive few weeks in February, six young people came together to form a new Carefree band to perform at this year's regional ‘Music For Youth’ Contemporary Festival. The group worked really hard and did an amazing job performing them in front of a huge audience at Heartlands!
This project was delivered in partnership with Cornwall Music Hub who offer free music lessons for all young people in care. Contact Annie our arts coordinator to find out more- email@example.com
The Young Women's group ran over ten weekly sessions and covered healthy eating and shopping on a budget, developing cooking skills, Zumba dance, information and advice from Brook on period poverty and products, designing the Carefree Christmas card and lots of fun and games.
Other groups and activities have included swimming, a night walk, film making, surfing, climbing and so much more!
