Make A Noise

Inspired by an annual theme within the libraries, In-Situ were successful in securing funding from the local initiatives fund through Lancashire County Council. This fund has enabled us to create a series of creative sessions for young people aged 13 +. The seasons have been planned around the types of activities young people we have been meeting in the library and at the local college Marsden Heights. We have started exploring music making with More Music in Morecambe, digital arts with Art Locates Me and Fashion with Street Style Surgery. We are working with local partners Project Pride.

The young people haven't really experienced any form of creative workshops and therefore this process will open up ideas as to what they may like to develop in the future with In-Situ and also gain experience working along side artists and creative practitioners. Here are some of the early results:

 Laying down some beats and writing raps

 Playing with manipulated images for projection

 Spray painting t-shirts

As part of the work some of the young people are aiming to achieve there Bronze Arts Award and we visited Contact Theatre in Manchester to see a modern version of Romeo & Juliet.
