Our project aims to bring together local creative talent and showcase their work at the event 'Boscombe Bound; Urban Art Sessions'. The aim of the event is to inspire young minds and imaginations, broaden networks and bring young people and artists together.
About the project
We are raising money to help fund 'Boscombe Bound; Urban Art Sessions,' a live art experience that brings together young, creative talent in the Bournemouth and Boscombe area to showcase and celebrate their work. In order to achieve our aim, we need to raise just £100 to put towards the running costs of this extremely exciting event.
We are a group of Bournemouth University students who are working alongside The Great Exhibition of Boscombe, in association with the Arts by the Sea festival. The Arts by the Sea festival and the work of The Great Exhibiton of Boscombe has put Bournemouth and Boscombe on the map as an area with a rapidly growing organic network of local talent. This community includes artists, designers and performers who form an ever expanding team of passionate and enthusiastic role models. On top of this, The Great Exhibition of Boscombe has recently launched The Arts Award, a nation wide scheme that offers young people the chance to gain a recognised qualification to add to their CVs in the creative activities they are already taking part in.
Boscombe Bound aims to provide a one off event that will showcase the best young artisits, musicians, animators and provide free workshops for the public to get involved with on the day. Through this, the event aims to promote The Arts Award and bring inspiration to the less fortunate young people in the Boscombe area by encouraging them to participate in this highly rewarding scheme.
