ART IN MOTION

Art in Motion, our new project in collaboration with The DEEN Centre, aims to promote positive mental well-being through inspiring field trips and stimulating creative workshops over the summer.


Professional multidisciplinary artist, Zara Saghir, will be running these workshops with the community, providing opportunities to explore some of the natural wonders right on our doorstep here in the heart of Pendle. We will be exploring the Leeds/Liverpool canal, Lomeshaye Nature Reserve, Towneley Park, Turton and Entwistle Reservoir, and even taking a trip to Liverpool to explore art in the city.

Art in Motion will work with women, children and families from the BAME community who have suffered during the pandemic. The workshops will focus on group creativity and provide opportunities to build relationships. Our aim is to dissipate negative feelings of isolation, anxiety and loneliness caused by the pandemic, as we begin our return to normality. We will be working both indoors and outdoors exploring a range of artistic techniques such as sketching, stitching, painting and collage. This project will offer a platform in which people can come together to share their experiences and their love of art.
