Summer holidays 2020 Creative Showcase Our Creative Courses regularly bring together young people aged 11-16 from diverse backgrounds, in community settings across Bristol and South Gloucestershire. During the summer holidays, we delivered two online four week courses, meeting on Zoom to develop new skills and developing resilience through creativity. Creative practitioners delivered Performance and Fashion courses, enabling young people to express themselves creatively. We hope you enjoy the uplifting and inspiring work you can find documented below. Well done to every single one of you for finding inspiration and expressing yourselves and your emotions through performance and fashion!

DONATE NOW For young people Creativity Live Summer holidays 2020 Creative Showcase Performance The young people on this four week course focused on creative writing to develop a character. In between the sessions with Willow, the Performance tutor, the group were also able to work in their own time on their pieces. They have chosen to write about how their character was affected by lockdown and used this as a starting point to produce a short story. The group gained confidence in performing the pieces and were able to get feedback from each other on how to enhance their work. You can see how creative and imaginative they have been in this video of them reading their pieces to us.
