Creative Canopy event TODAY in Bream, Forest of Dean

Inspired by Arts Council England (ACE) initiative Creative People and Places, today the Forest hosts it’s first event delivered by Creative Canopy. It’s a provisional name for a collective of arts practitioners and organisations in the area, who have been meeting regularly to discuss what can be learnt from Creative People & Places projects, and how that learning can be used locally. We have Sarah Butler & Nicole Collette giving us a presentation and hosting a workshop, come and be inspired by their wonderful drawings, words and animations from 100 Stories.

Here’s an example: How to Build Trust (Butler & Mollett)

With support from ACE, the process of enquiry begins by inviting artists to show and share what they do in the Forest,  inviting the public to come and see what is already happening here. A day for people to join in with activities by having a go,  finding out more about what is on offer, and being entertained too! A day for people to join in with activities by having a go, find out more about what is on offer and being entertained too! Expect music, trapeze, there, brass bands, jive dance, and lots lots more.

We’re part of the Get Creative Weekend too – a nationwide celebration of creativity.
