Our Art Neighbourhood is an exciting new arts project which is coming to Leigh this summer.
We’re calling on all budding artists from across the Leigh Neighbours to get involved, young and old alike. It doesn’t matter how experienced you are – a seasoned pro or a complete novice – we’d love you to get your creative juices flowing.
There’ll be something for everyone, with digital art and urban art workshops culminating in an ambitious billboards project where the most innovative examples of local art will be showcased in a fantastic public celebration. Local artist Gecko will be leading some of the workshops, together with other local talent.
We’re also thrilled at having renowned Lancashire artist Rachael Elwell return to Leigh, where she’ll be inviting knitters to embellish street furniture and local buildings to create a bright woolly art trail.
Our Art Neighbourhood is a programme of visual arts workshops supported by Arts Council England and organised by Leigh Neighbours community project. It’s an opportunity to bring the community together as well as a means of promoting Leigh in a positive light across the borough and beyond.
We’re currently producing a schedule which will outline all the times and venues for each of the workshops. This will appear on our website soon. In the meantime, if you’d like to go on our mailing list, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
