Full details of the project: 

Sugar Storm is pleased to present its first summer creative development workshop, for young women, trans and non binary people with an interest in pursuing an independent creative practice, or developing a portfolio to work towards further education or a career in the arts. We have been awarded Arts Council Funding for this project. 

The programme will give young creatives the tools and time for creative exploration and independent practice, working with an experienced artist in a working artists space. It will begin with five days of intensive workshops which will cover developing a self-led project, time management and idea development, as well as technical skills including screen printing, book binding and Risograph printing. Young people will have access to continued support over the summer holidays and will meet for a creative crit at the end of the holidays to celebrate their progress and address their struggles. Participants will also have an opportunity to work with local arts collective The Agency of Visible Women, and contribute to their 2020 International Women’s Day exhibition at The Beecroft Art Gallery. 

The motivation behind this project is to sustain creative interest within young people in the local area and encourage creative thinking towards future goals. This project will allow them to experience professional development, working with other creatives and working within an arts organisation, while learning skills to develop their independent practice.
