Please note that this event has passed.


Jack Drum Arts are running a series of satellite events in County Durham as part of the ESRC Centre for Society and Mental Health 2022 Festival: Partnering for Change with a focus on community gatherings, recognising the importance of bringing people together for shared experiences, being creative and supporting wellbeing.

See below for activities taking place on Tuesday 21st June. 

Silk Painting Workshop

10:30 – 16:30, St Cuthberts Centre Church Hill, Crook, County Durham

Suitable for adults age 18+. Join Jack Drum’s team of staff, volunteers and freelance artists for a day of silk painting helping to create a community banner inspired by the themes of the festival. This meditative artform helps to reduce stress and aids wellbeing and is a particularly effective medium as it brings people together. You can join for the day or just come for a couple of hours. There will be free lunch provided as part of the activity.

Registration information: If you are interested in taking part, please email info@jackdrum.co.uk with Silk Painting as the subject.

 

Get Set Samba

18:30 – 20:30, St Cuthberts Centre Church Hill, Crook, County Durham

Suitable for young people age 10+. Our youth drumming band are opening their doors to welcome young people to attend a masterclass session with freelance percussionist Sam Ward-Hardy who will teach a new piece of music to participants. Numerous studies have shown that collective music-making has a positive impact on mental health supporting wellbeing, improving confidence whilst providing a safe place for young people to make new social connections. Refreshments will be provided as part of the session.

Registration information: If you are interested in taking part, please email info@jackdrum.co.uk with Get Set Samba as the subject.
