Creative Literacy and Art in a Van for young people

Creative Literacy and Art project with Roma and Traveller Teenagers in Cambridgeshire

Compas and Oblique Arts work together to host creative literacy workshops for Roma and Traveller teenagers. 

Creative literacy

We offer Creative Literacy workshops for adults and teenagers. We have enabled Traveller teenagers to provide exhibitions to the local library. As part of our education work we are registered with ‘Education Otherwise’ and can provide some support for Traveller children whilst not in school. We liaise with local education providers to call for an end to bullying and discrimination and to offer advice about culturally appropriate  approaches to working effectively with Traveller families. 

Art in a Van

Our mobile workshop facility goes out to Traveller sites. It is popular with 8-13 year olds and results have been exhibited as a part of our Oral History project at Cambridge Artworks and the Museum of Cambridge.
