Great turn out to celebrate the artwork

The exhibition InVisible Voices was opened by the Lord Mayor of Leicester. Friends, families, creatives, homeless workers, councillors and dignitaries came together to celebrate the year long project working with the homeless and vulnerable of Leicester. The art work looked amazing with Radio Leicester, the Mercury and the Big Issue there to record the event.

More sessions ahead!

Really proud!…after a year working with the homeless community in Leicester we have been successful in gaining funding from the National Lottery to move the workshops to different centres, to work with all age groups.

Our year long project In Visible Voices will culminate in an exhibition at the Adult Education College on Wellington St Leicester in April. We want to celebrate the amazing work from our many artists.
