COMMUNITY AMBASSADOR CONFERENCE – YOUTH VOICE

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.

‘Abbey at Sea’ Exhibition by Abbey teenagers in.. a fishy tale.. the sea/pollution

Oblique Arts Exhibition of Teen Art …’Abbey at Sea’.

Reaching out to the community of Cambridge CB5.

Helping kids to get involved in art.

Art is of course good for the mind, soul & well being, it opens the whole universe letting us travel in history, geography, science etc…

Oblique Arts were given access to an empty shop premises. Great use of space for the community.

And a great way to bring people together from the local community.

Building connections between different mediums to bring awareness of our interaction with each other and the planet.

Workshop at Jimmy’s Nightshelter 13/02/18

My latest Oblique Arts workshop with the residents of Jimmy’s Night Shelter. They loved creating these abstract images using masking tape and acrylic … very effective, don’t you think! I am always amazed how everyone puts their own individual stamp on their creation. – Penny Sobr
