Community Arts by ZK partnered up with Little Marsden Parish Centre in Pendle and worked collaboratively on the project Neighbourhood Arts, which was funded by Clinical Commissioning Group.
The project focuses on the kind of creativity that is encouraged to flow and develop when people feel valued in their community. The activity sparked off conversations and new friendships.
Artist Zaneb Khatun delivered a series of art workshops for the people in Nelson from a range of cultural, faith and social backgrounds.
The workshops took a “hands-on” approach and engaged members of our diverse community through the creation of art.
As well as the art activities, the sessions included conversations about the passion we share to use creativity as a means of improving the personal and social health of a neighbourhood. These conversations acted as a starting point for the artworks and are integral to the planning of future strategies for community-based art projects. The workshops were delivered to all ages.
