For over 15 years we have been promoting creativity in learning. It’s been clear in all of our work that rhythm and rhyme, stories and songs could help many young learners improve their progress. Find out much more about the methods and results in our Films section.

But now, for summer 2020, it’s a great pleasure to announce our participation in a new creative project for Post Covid Recovery … more about that below. And even more exciting is the opening of our brand new Local History & Green Energy centre. Together, these 2 strands offer wonderful learning experiences for a range of ages and interests.

To NOMINATE YOUR LOCAL HEROES of LOCKDOWN .. just click here. Why? Well it’s all part of the ‘feel-good’ Tapestry of Heroes project. Do you remember the Thursday evening clap for carers and NHS workers? Our strand of the Creative Post Covid Recovery for PL24 is taking that idea much further, expanding to include all our local heroes. We have begun, collecting and mixing sounds into a ‘tapestry’ of singing, speaking, clapping and drumming. We have also started making a real tapestry, which will ‘fly’ on March 25th 2021 – national Clap for Carers Day. Take this link for further info and OCTOBER HALF TERM WORKSHOPS

This Post Covid Tapestry project is 1 of 7 different strands of activity on offer in Par area, funded and supported by Creative Civic Change. Find out more here:
