On Thursday, February 6th we’ll be opening the doors at INTRA from 10am – 7pm, to discuss the forthcoming Get Creative Medway map.
The project has been funded by Ideas Test and will result in a free paper map that showcases arts and community venues throughout the Medway Towns, and an online version too.
You’ll be able to see where you can take creative courses and workshops, access arts facilities and equipment, hire spaces for club meetings, and take part in creative activities during festivals and events. We’ll also be listing people who run creative activities (for people of all abilities) in various local venues.
So far we have located activities including: arts & crafts, printmaking, sculpture, creative writing, recording studios, dressmaking, icon painting, watercolour painting, drama, dance, orchestras, photography, quilting, floral art, digital media, bookbinding, ceramics, film making, jewellery design, costume design, life drawing, felt making and more.
During the open day we will show the work in progress on the map, and invite passers-by to take part in a vinyl sticker cutting activity to decorate one of INTRA’s shop windows. We’ll be asking what creative activities they would most like to do and reflecting this in the stickers.
If you are interested in the map, have suggestions for venues to include, run workshops yourself, or just fancy cutting out some stickers – pop in and see us on Thursday.
