This celebration event gives participants who attend Artcore creative sessions an opportunity to exhibit their artwork and celebrate their achievements. The sessions all carry health and well-being messages, as well as giving community members the opportunity to explore a variety of art mediums and increase skills.
The showcase of art work will be shown in the gallery, studio and corridor spaces. This occasion also marks the installation of a stair lift at Artcore premises, and we are extremely pleased to able to improve accessibility and inclusion for all, with thanks to Awards For All Big Lottery Fund support.
During the summer holidays Artcore also delivered ‘Creative Summer’ sessions for young people throughout the Arboretum, Normanton and Abbey wards in Derby City. Young people were engaged in a variety of creative activities at various community centres in those areas.
As a result of the hard work and enthusiasm of participants and Artcore artists 15 large scale community artworks were created in each medium. These impressive art pieces will be housed at different public spaces from the various wards, and we will be proud to present them at this event.
