I have loved delivering this project so far and the youth groups I've worked with have been wonderful! It is currently still on hiatus due to the coronavirus outbreak. In future when able to do so in person the project will be working with The Kite Trust bringing its contents to Cambridge, Ely and March - resource in circulation 2022.
In the Summer of 2019 I was the recipient of a small grant for young entrepreneurs by the Guildhall School for Music and Drama in collaboration with the Barbican. This allowed me to embark on a solo art project, Pride in Progress, a series of art workshops specifically designed for LGBT+ youth groups in the UK.
Pride in Progress consists of four workshops:
The workshops are 60-90 minutes long, designed for groups of 10-15 individuals and allow space for free creative expression combined with a couple of more structured educational learning tools.
11 in-person workshops ran successfully from late 2019- early 2020 with positive feedback.
"Joe was excellent at keeping the young people engaged and it was extremely informative!"
"A positive engagement of young people in a creative process that relates directly to them....well organised and well pitched."
