A Blanket Full of Stories

Headway Arts proudly presents A BLANKET FULL OF STORIES with Releasing Potential

Join us on an adventure through the technicolour world of our imaginations. There is no one way of telling a story. We leave an impact upon everyone we meet in our lives, and so we become part of every story we are told…
This interactive storytelling experience is the culmination of a Releasing Potential training course, our unique award winning arts based training programme funded through the European Social Fund. It showcases the talents of the group who have been developing employability skills through the arts working alongside Headway Arts’ professional company.

We invite you to become part of the story on Wednesday 1st March from 3pm at Headway ArtSpace.

Heroes and Villains Satellites Taster Day and The Big Draw

Are you or do you know a budding artist?

We are looking for learning disabled people aged 16+, their carers, families and friends to attend our free event for The Big Draw.

The event at ArtSpace will be open from 11am – 3pm next Tuesday (20th October). It will also run as a free creative art taster day of Satellites workshops which run Monday – Thursday every week. Satellites workshops, as many of you know, are our inspiring and creative performing arts workshops.

The theme for this year’s Big Draw is “Every Drawing Tells a Story”. We are asking artists to draw their favourite heroes and villains from their favourite graphic comics or novels. The drawings will be used to create a story which they can take wherever they want it to go.

As always, there is no previous experience necessary. All you need to do is wear something you don’t mind getting dirty. It is going to be a great day where you can make new friends and work together to produce a beautiful piece of art.

If you fancy it, we would like you to make a booking with us. You can do this by calling 01670351962 or pop us an email: admin@headwayarts.co.uk.

If you know someone else who might enjoy it, feel free to share our post with them. The more the merrier!

Happy drawing!
