Movema world dance 10 week project

‘Chinese New Year – Earth element’

Between November 2019 and January 2020 a group of 11 children worked with Movema world dance company on  a Chines New year themed project.  Staff from Childrens social care attended to support and to get involved too.  We all had so much fun and learnt a lot of new skills.  The children involved want to continue working wit Movema and plan to do so in the future.  Look out for new projects starting and some online dance sessions within the meetings and events calendar.

 

Summer Project 2018

Every year we team up with Liverpool council and Collective encounters to facilitate a summer project which helps the children who attend to explore ‘art’.  Most of the children don’t usually realise that ‘art’ is every part of their everyday life, so they take a journey through a week packed full of activities and are supported to challenge or enhance their views and perspectives.  Here are some of the photos that we captured within the summer project ‘Finding your Happy’ 2018.

(Thank you to Abi at Collective encounters and to our wonderful group for making the project so much fun and enjoyable.)

 

 

 

 

‘I have a voice’ project March 2018

From January – March 2018 this year we worked with Steph, a 3rd year student from LIPA, Liverpool institute of performing arts in Liverpool centre.  Within the project we worked to learn how to express our voice and share why we feel young people voices and opinions are important and why they need to be heard.  Please see attached the project timeline to see what our project was all about.  11 of us in all got together to make this happen and we presented our work in Knowsley community college to Heads of service, executive Directors and frontline staff .
