Aiming for: Greater collaboration, opportunities and resources for great creative arts in Greater Shankill •

The group meets monthly to learn the skills and techniques to draw and record the world around them. The aim is for participants to learn to ‘see’ their environment, critically and analytically.

It would be great to see a mentoring project in the area that actively encourages participation in a variety of art-forms and extends into the community.

Every Tuesday we have two groups of young people (about 25-30 kids) learning all sorts of arts, making puppets, larger sculptures and costume. They learn dance in different styles, street theatre, performance and percussion. Sometimes we organise art workshops for the parents and get about 10 of them in the class.

All our workshops happen here but our groups perform in events around the city and across NI.

I do professional artwork at the studio on the Shankill and develop resources and prepare workshops for projects with various groups and organisations across Northern Ireland.

Our arts work reaches across Shankill Road, Falls Road, Ardoyne, Crumlin Road... Greater Belfast.

We need better exposure – not many people know who we are or what we do.

I’d like to see an improvement in how our outreach programme is marketed. Local marketing is geared through Facebook and this communication is difficult to target.
