Past programme

Over the past two years, #artcore has run a varied multi-arts programme at sites across the city, working with a range of partners.  

In Spring 2015, we trialled a series of short projects working with young people, on varied, experimental studios, labs and happenings, trying out fresh ideas.

Then from Autumn 2015 until summer 2016 we ran a weekly programme of activities, working with over 1500 young people, supporting them to develop their own creative ideas and projects - from gaming to animation, from physical theatre to creative writing, from circus skills to comics! See below for more info and pics of what happened!
