Community Projects.  


The Carnival Arts group have been involved with a wide range of community project from the very first venture when we started in 1996. The group was created in response to the need for an artistic input into the Hereford Carnival. That year we ran two weeks of carnival workshops at a local youth club that were open to all participants. We provided a range of materials and equipment and staffed the site with experienced Community Artists. It was a great success with some amazing creations joining the carnival that year.

Since then we have been involved in many different community events such a Hereford  Council funded project to create an Andy Goldsworthy inspired temporary sculpture area in a local woodland with children and young people, working with a local group of adults with learning difficulties to create an instillation in which they then performed a play they had devised. We have worked with children’s summer play schemes in south Hereford city, co-ordinating workshops collimating in a children’s parade at the South Wye Big Event. We have been part of an umbrella group that ran several, community one day events, with live music performed by local musicians and family workshops among other attractions. In 2002 with MENCAP in Birmingham, produced a series of sessions at a weekend arts and theatre family event providing an arts input and a children’s summer club for children in Wolverhampton.

We even ran children’s workshops in a shopping centre for three summers!

We are flexible and able to offer a wide range of workshops to suit the needs of community groups large and small. We have experience of co-ordinating events, administrating budgets and working closely with other providers and organisations. We always aim to run workshops that meet the aspirations of those involved and provide a stimulating and enjoyable experience.
