Our project is an exciting Arts Festival in summer for local people to enjoy!

by Martin Thomas in Bromley, England, United Kingdom

We plan to have a really wide range of events over an 8 day period in June: A Romanian Cultural evening, a dance evening with students from Trinity Laban, an ensemble performance with members of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, a poetry talk, two further recitals, two art competitions for children and adults, a choir recital, a concert by Brighter Horizons (a group that is based here working with people with learning difficulties), a choral workshop in the neighbouring school with leading choral group Ensemble Plus Ultra, a pop-up bar and Jazz evening, and a Samba Band - something for everyone!We will work with our local stakeholders to enable wide access and participation. On site we have Brighter Horizons, an organisation who work Mon-Fri here with people with learning difficulties, they will work towards a concert. Youth engagement and inter-generational impact will be achieved through many events but particularly the choral workshop at the school. We will work with St John the Baptist school to promote the poetry and art competitions. We will work with Phoenix Housing to ensure local residents are aware of the Festival, particularly through their sheltered and supported housing schemes. We have our own groups for older people and these are a mix of people from the local community. They will be encouraged to access events through the week. We will involve our Youth Group in aspects of the delivery of the project which will bring them directly into working contact with senior citizens. We work with a wide range of community groups through church and through partnerships with local stakeholders such as Phoenix and local schools and colleges and think we have good access to what people might be excited by.
