Onwards and Outwards 2021 Community Arts Project

We are very exited to announce that we have received a  grant from the Community Action Fund and we would like to thank the police commissioning funders for their support of our project ‘Onwards and Outwards’

As we work on the project we update the web site with information on a regular basis.

We are currently working on the Make zine, art resource that will be available to all our project participants past present and future.

The Last legs Make Art Zine is currently available online via the link on the previous post while we are in the early stages of development.

We are producing a  ‘hard’ copy of this publication  that can be included in the art packs we are also currently putting together for members of the community most in need of creative support in the Blackpool and Fylde areas.

We draw our inspiration from working with others and believe that a creative community is a healthy community.

We had ‘two young ladies who really benefited from the art packs during lock down, they both live with anxiety and depression and find art lets them express themselves and lets them take their mind of things for a while, they use the art packs and other supplies on a regular basis and found them really helpful.’

We included small canvases, a box of paint and brush in the art packs

We will soon be working face to face with participants once again and are exited to get going on new activities using the art packs and ‘Makezine’ to help facilitate creative workshops
