Following on from last year’s award winning Circles of Light (The Big Draw in Fylde); Fylde artist Christine Stringfellow has secured £10,000 from the Lottery through Grants for the Arts to deliver another participatory art project across Fylde.
Five artists will be employed to deliver a range of art workshops, drop-in activities and programmes of six sessions in the borough. The venues for the art activities include Lytham Hall, Kirkham Memorial Park and St Annes Music and Arts Festival.
“Applications for Lottery Funding have a 40% success rate so I’m thrilled my bid has been successful.” says Christine. “This means five Fylde or Lancashire based artists will have an opportunity to gain paid work experience whilst delivering a range of free, visual arts activities to the residents of Fylde.”
The workshops will take place during June, July, August and September. Information will be posted on www.circlesoflight-fylde.blogspot.co.ok as the details are confirmed.
Community organisations wanting to get involved should contact Christine via the blog.
A call for artists will follow soon.
