Our Stories






"Arts project 'Our Stories' began in late 2017 an arts project for migrants.

Migrant meaning a person who leaves one country to settle permanently in another. And in response to the need of Derby’s migrant community, Artcore being an organisation that is BME led, and a charity, operating in the heart of the community, who's ethos to strengthen community cohesion, help people become independent and much more through the medium of art. The 'Our Stories' project was born.

Aiming to 'bring individuals from Migrant Communities such as Normanton, Osmaston, Peartree, and the Cavendish areas together to share in Arts based workshops'.

The 'Our Stories' project will include an exhibition of work and a celebration of Derby's migrant diaspora during Refugee week 18-24 June 2018.

Sessions are on a Tuesday morning 10 – 12 pm
