Creative Summer – Metropolitan A programme of creative activities in the Arboretum areas of Derby every Thursday, Open for all. Through this project we aim to invite residents of the Metropolitan housing association to come to the park and celebrate the history of the park over the last 175 years.

As a part of our ‘Invisible Boundaries’ project, participants were invited to the Orangery in the Derby Arboretum Park to learn more about the park and celebrate its history by creating artwork inspired by the park. Workshops were also held at the Church Street Community Center and at the Artcore Studio. The sessions at the Community Center were the most popular. People stated that they were particularly looking forward to our sessions.

A variety of mediums were used for the sessions, giving the opportunity for participants to explore a range of new skills and ideas.

Participants engaged in art activities, helping them develop new skills as well as build relations with other members of their local community.
Across all workshops, about 50 participants were engaged through workshops and involved in the various activities.
