Allow me to introduce Branch Out Arts
I’ve set up Branch Out Arts in an attempt to inspire young minds (and ignite *not literally* older ones) through creativity.
Branch Out Arts aims to promote (and eventually produce) educational, inspirational, but most of all fun arts events and activities that offer everyone, but particularly young people, the opportunity to discover and enjoy the arts as audiences, as learners and as creators.
Based in Northallerton, North Yorkshire, Branch Out Arts strongly believes that children and young people everywhere should have access to great arts and culture, and as such I’m setting out to spread the word about exciting arts activities taking place locally, regionally and nationally in a bid to ignite imaginations and inspire happy, healthy, exciting futures through high quality artistic pursuit.
Having been inspired by an arts centre that I attended as a child I’ve spent my career to date working in the arts, mainly on public engagement programmes for galleries, museums, arts centres, theatre companies and festivals I’ve been bitten by a really exciting bug. A bug that has made me passionate about access to the arts for all, and highly aware of the joy that art can bring to people of all ages in addition to the horizon-shifting memorable experiences and valuable life skills that can be acquired through creative learning and engagement.
I also run a twice weekly arts club for adults from my home studio. More info here – Branch Out Arts Club.
