*FREE* Autumn Creative Engagement programmes at Gulbenkian!
11 Aug 2021
The Gulbenkian is proud to announce the launch of new, creative programmes for children and young people aged 5 to 25 this Autumn! Thanks to funding from Arts Council England and Kent County Council, these sessions will all be free of charge.
New to Gulbenkian are the Creative Club for ages 5-12, in which a different artist will lead 10 weekly workshops, giving children a chance to try out new art forms and discover their creativity, and the Gulbenkian Performance Company for ages 19-25, who will devise work as a group and build performance skills in a fun, relaxed environment.
After a break during the COVID lockdown period, we will also bring back our successful Youth Theatre for ages 13-18. Sessions give the opportunity to perform and gain theatre-making skills, with a focus on creativity, building confidence and making new friends along the way.
The Creative Engagement Manager at Gulbenkian, Becky Lees, said:
“The past 18 months have been a particularly challenging time for young people, with lockdowns depriving many of key milestones in their lives and causing additional stress and isolation, so it feels a more important time than any to ensure all young people have the opportunity to access these creative groups which will support social skills and confidence and improve mental wellbeing.”
Booking is open for the Autumn 2021 term now via www.thegulbenkian.co.uk. Any questions please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
