Twenty Twenty Productions officially launched their ‘Youth Voice’ program during their Community Ambassador conference on the 6th of July.

This project will give young people in Fenland the opportunity to have their say on issues that are important to them. As well as being involved in decisions that impact young people locally.

This follows a lot of partnership work with Cambridgeshire County Council and Fenland District Council and is being supported by Clarion Futures and Department for Education.

Beverley Carpenter, the founder of Oblique Arts hosted a banner making workshop about art and activism at the conference. The ambassadors created banners sharing messages about what matters to them.

We are delighted to be working with Twenty Twenty Productions to deliver this project.

Message Symbol Art Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Zeenath

Keith used the city as his canvas to increase awareness of subjects such as anti drugs,

stick figures & words to create a wall of Love to the world.

The colour really adds magic and vibrancy! Wonderful !

Peace Wreath Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn 
Inspired by World Peace & Xmas, the guests wanted to make wreaths made from paper hands. Such a simple idea but very effective outcome! The guests were thrilled with their wreaths which they hung on their bedroom doors and in the main lounge.
Such a great symbolic message too ….of coming together and creating world peace & love at this special time of the year!

There have been some super artists at Jimmy’s who love to draw… you don’t much just some paper, pens and pencils! A great way to express yourself and maybe add some words too!























20 Nov 2018 Express Yourself ! @ Jimmy’s

Abstract Painting – Beyond the Brush! Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn 
There’s lots of ways to express yourself with paint such as smearing, smudging and scraping the paint…you don’t have to use a paint brush!
The guest’s explored these abstract painting techniques and had great fun!
There’s no rules and anything goes!























13 Nov 2018 Escape through Colour ! @ Jimmy’s

Bleeding Tissue Art Workshop – led by artist Penny Sobr & Dylan Wynn 
The guest’s explored colour spontaneously by playing with bleeding tissue which adds a bit of a kind of tie dye effect to their drawings and collage etc…

Tissue Paper bleeding is a fantastic way of creating multicolour backgrounds, what we love about it best, is that its totally random and you have no real control over the end result. It’s like waiting for magic to happen!

You can peel it off to reveal amazing colourful effects or decide to leave it on as collage,
either way works!

Use every colour of the rainbow to soar and shine with ideas! Escape through swirls and shapes of tones and shades!
