Digital Arts Get Together
Welcome to Digital Arts Get Together, a creative, community project aiming to bring together the community to enjoy digital arts. We’re hosting digital art activity sessions open to asylum seekers, refugees, vulnerable migrants and local families looking to integrate and socialise within the community. These sessions are designed to encourage social cohesion with local families through the shared love of creating art.
In addition to learning new skills, Digital Arts Get Together provides a fun and interactive way for families to bond and build relationships with one another. We hope that by coming together to create and learn, we can foster a sense of community and belonging for all participants.
Each session we’ll have activities that explore different ways of creating art using technology. With the support of our experienced tutors young people will create art using a variety of materials and technology. Some of our most popular activities include creating animations, AR colouring, designing and making badges, and greenscreen photography. No prior experience is necessary – these sessions are suitable for all levels.
Digital Art Get Together sessions will be held in community centres throughout Widnes and Runcorn to enable easier access for families residing on both sides of the Mersey. There will be refreshments and a welcoming, social atmosphere; we want families from all backgrounds to join us for afternoons filled with creative fun! We’ll have free packs of art supplies for the young people to take home with them. Whilst the young people are busy being creative, it gives a chance for the adults to socialise and meet new people, share experiences and explore different cultures.
