Opening up access to creative and digital technology learning for disadvantaged and isolated residents of Barrow
The Cadent Foundation is generously supporting us with funding that provides opportunities for people aged 18 or over to gain new digital and creative skills, develop self-confidence and self-belief and move towards employment in the creative and community sector.
So far participants have taken part in loads of different workshops, created digital and physical exhibitions of their artworks, had one to one and mentoring support, gained qualifications for working in the film industry and done paid work placements to develop vocational skills.
what participants have said so far..
“The sense of community with the other members and looking forward to meeting everyone and seeing how the edits and final piece will look after the week”.
“A really fun experience for meeting new people and doing something you love!”
Workshops take place at Signal Film and Media, Cooke’s Studios, 104 Abbey Road, Barrow, LA14 5QR and via Zoom
Additional staff are on hand for support and are trained in safeguarding, mental health & emergency first aid.
