We think everyone should have the chance to learn, create, perform and discover new and exciting things.
That’s why our creative projects are big, bold and unusual, giving local people the opportunity to work with the very best artists and creative organisations in diverse and unexpected ways.
To give you a flavour, here are just a few of our recent creative projects:
The Caravan Gallery
We brought the nationally-renowned Caravan Gallery to Sneinton, to create a Pride of Place exhibition by and for local people, including stories, photos and memorabilia reflecting and celebrating the neighbourhood, plus a map created by local people. The Caravan Gallery has graced the likes of the Tate Modern, so this was a big deal for Sneinton.
The adventures of Prince Achmed
We partnered with Nottingham’s Muslim Community Organisation to hold a community screening of the magical fairytale, The Adventures of Prince Achmed, in Sneinton. The evening brought the whole community together with food provided by local organisation Growin’ Spaces and papercut shadow puppets created by local people and artist Sarah Manton from Curious?
Nott Romeo & Juliet
We’ve worked with Birmingham Royal Ballet and Dance4 for several years now, giving hundreds of young people in the area the chance to learn ballet with the world’s best dancers. Nott Romeo and Juliet was a collaborative project of young dancers from the area and musicians from Community Recording Studio (CRS) and included the opportunity to create an original piece of music, choreograph a dance piece and perform their work at the Theatre Royal Nottingham.
To accompany the project a short film was produced by We Are Caravan.
