Never mind the Bee’s Knees, could you be the Dragon’s legs?

Dilys the ArtSpace Dragon is currently legless.  In order to reprise her 2017 role, fighting St George around the middle of town as part of the Town Council’s Community Event, she needs your help!

We need several volunteers to be legs, or wing or tail supporters on Sunday 22nd April 2018 from 11am.  It was great fun last year, if you would like to join in on Sunday 22nd April, please email us on the ArtSpace email (MaccCommArtSpace@mail.com).  Have a look at the photos for an idea of what to expect.

Go on you know you want to!

Many thanks to Greg and Anna for the photos 🙂

Be creative, write a poem on Byron street, wear black on black road or dance down Star Lane in a star costume.

Children should be accompanied by an adult.

Dress for the weather and wear sturdy shoes.

 

  A bit more about the project

We’re  really pleased to announce a new initiative at ArtSpace, Hearty Arty. Please see the details below and let us know if you’d like to get involved in any way:

Hearty Arty is Artspace’s latest project to support people’s well-being. It uses art to encourage physical and mental fitness and explores the connection between them all. Activities will be a combination of art and fitness – but the fitness aspect will be very gentle and mainly walking – with a bit of good food included. It will include regular walks with an artistic theme and explore different types of artistic expression based at Artspace.

Expertly led gentle fitness support and exploratory art sessions, samples of food and guided local walks will be available and a counsellor will be on hand for general and specific support.Everyone is welcome to join and we especially welcome anyone with vulnerable mental health or prone to loneliness or anxiety.

We also need people who can offer support on the walks, in the art sessions or in producing and advising on good food. If you have an empathetic ear, relevant practical skills or are just happy to muck in wherever necessary please let us know by emailing us MaccCommArtSpace@mail.com or leave a message on our answerphone 01625 440694

The project will run throughout the week but most events will happen on Thursdays and some Saturdays starting in March 2017
Look forward to seeing you Hearty Artists!
