We Are All Artists

  View all PreviousNext

We’ve teamed up with mental health charity 42nd Street to host their biggest ever drop-in art session at the Arndale.

On Friday 28th and Saturday 29th July, we’re teaming up with 42nd Street to host a two-day event in Exchange Court where you can enjoy creative art sessions and take part in an array of art projects.

Across the two days, we have a back-to-back schedule where you can take part in a variety of workshops. Craft fake food using clay, make fun sculptures using cardboard or create your own collages using cut ups of magazines. Whatever you fancy, there’s something for all ages to enjoy. Check out the full timetable below!

Alongside the workshops, other activities are also running throughout the day including a doodling station, an area to create weird and wonderful creatures, and a quieter space to sit, reflect and chat to the 42nd Street team about the work they do and how they work alongside young people.
