Generation Arts Digital Sessions: What’s next?

Our dedicated Generation Arts Digital sessions have now come to a close.  The weekday afternoon and evening digital sessions attracted many of you in, and for some it was their first experience of ArtSpace. Many thanks to Jean and Jess for such positive, useful and welcoming workshops.

As the Saturday sessions have not been well attended, it has been decided not to run these monthly.  Instead dedicated digital workshops sessions will be run on an ad hoc basis throughout the year.

Don’t forget that the Digital Art Room is open whenever ArtSpace is and is free to use for all.  All we ask is that a small donation is given for any printing that you do to cover the cost of ink and paper.

Hope to see you all soon!

Generation Arts Project

Macclesfield Community Artspace has added a whole load of possibilities to the arts activities already on offer:  we have launched our Digital Arts Project – and you are welcome to join in for free!

We have created a Digital Art Room with computers, copiers, software and scanners to allow you to play around with photography, produce pictures and posters and learn more about how to use digital resources for creativity.

We look forward to seeing you during any of our general drop in times and have also arranged a series of dedicated sessions for those who would welcome some support.

The Generation Arts sessions are OPEN TO ALL and we particularly invite older people, those inexperienced with digital technology, younger people (12 – 22 year olds), especially any out of school or at risk.

Sessions run twice weekly for the next 2 weeks on Tuesdays 6:30 till 8:30 and Thursdays 12:noon till 2pm
TUESDAYS – 6.30 – 8.30p.m.
January 26th
February 2nd
THURSDAYS – 12.00 – 2.00p.m.
January 28th
February 4th

Monthly Saturday sessions (10am till 2pm) were planned following these:
SATURDAYS 10a.m. – 2.00p.m.
February 13th

Subsequent saturday sessions have been cancelled due to lack of take up.

Whether you have never switched on a computer, or need to fine tune your digital skills, come along to meet our experts and volunteers, and have a go in our newly equipped Digital Art room.  There will opportunities to play with photographs, text, graphic design, and more.

There will also be a chance to tell us what you would like out of the group and what you can offer.

With funding support from

The aims of the project are:

  • to enhance the lives of people in the Macclesfield community,
  • to encourage people who are isolated and excluded to meet and work together,
  • to help isolated or excluded people get involved in art, develop skills and confidence in mixing with others.

The project will make digital arts activities available to people using the ArtSpace facilities at any time, and pilot a weekly term-time activity aimed at young people out of school and older people (to benefit from cross generational mixing, support and skill-sharing).
