Worcestershire art workshops given funding

THE Worcestershire Arts Partnership (WAP) is being funded by the West Mercia Police and Crime Commissioner to run two projects.

The funding was given to work with both adults and young people who are either at risk of offending or who are known to the Criminal Justice System.

This is the second year that WAP has been successful with an award from the Police Commissioner. In 2016 a project worked with 60 people who attended workshops in drama, creative writing, magic, sculpture and metal work and ceramics.

These workshops were led by the following artists: Laura McFall, Ruby Jennings, Miraculous Magic, Jest a Minute and Kay Mullett.

This new round of funding will see new groups of people working with a new range of artists on a range of art forms.
