Imaginative Neighbourhoods - Belgrave
Our artists in residence at Belgrave Library and Belgrave Neighbourhood Centre are Parmjit Sagoo and early years specialist Dave 'Stickman' Higgins.
"As drama artists, story-makers and yoga teachers, it's very exciting to be sharing the role of artist in residence and working so closely with the Belgrave community. We have both always loved visiting the Golden Mile, for food, clothes, music, celebrations and exciting atmosphere. There is always something interesting happening here! Over the coming months we will bring some new arts projects to add to this vibrancy. We'll be working with babies, children, young people and adults, using drama, movement and story-making to bring together different members of the community to connect, collaborate and be creative."
