Junction Arts, in association with DEBP, are thrilled to have been awarded funding by Bolsover Partnership, to deliver a new arts and wellbeing programme called ‘Six Pillars’.
Six Pillars will support the emotional health and wellbeing of young people, aged 11-18, in six communities across Bolsover district and North East Derbyshire. Young people will be supported to build life-long skills, create new friendships and improved confidence and become the six pillars to their own positive self-esteem and healthy futures, exploring volunteer opportunities and career pathways.
The project will see young people come together throughout a series of artistic taster activities, workshops and residencies in 2023 involving exciting and diverse artforms, chosen by the young people themselves. From painting in VR, puppetry, filmmaking and storytelling, the new work created through each residency will be brought together in spring 2024 through performance, film or exhibition.
Project Coordinator from Junction Arts, Amy Smith says: ‘We know that the arts can make a real difference to young peoples’ lives and we want to provide young people with the opportunity to make their own decisions and create their own unique creative experiences. Together we will build a platform for the voices and talents of the next generation to be heard and celebrated’.
