CULTURE COLOUR & CHOCOLATE
Culture's, Colour and Chocolate Project.
Culture's colours and chocolates project explored different cultural arts and how we celebrate the season of spring. Looking together at Holi - a popular ancient Hindu festival, also known as the "Festival of Love", the "Festival of Colours", and the "Festival of Spring".
While exploring different creative techniques we created our own sand mandalas. A mandala is a geometric configuration of symbols. In various spiritual traditions, mandalas are employed for focusing attention. Our mandalas were created with spring and spring time celebrations in mind.
Sharing memories group worked beside the wonderful children from Mount Plesant School in Lockwood and also with the fabulous children from Nabb School in Holmfirth.
The Museum of curiosities project.
This project is a celebration of ‘The Holmfirth Technical Collage’.
Exploring the history of ‘The Tech’ we found out that a museum of curiosities once resided within. Inspired by this and all the fabulous community groups who are & have made use of this wonderful building over the years, we developed this project to celebrate this community.
Sharing Memories group worked alongside the wonderful adults from Enfield Down Honley and Bridgewood Trust and the marvellous children from Nabb School Holmfirth, to bring this project to life.
Working with the people at Enfield Down we created and decorated our own percussion instruments and with help from Katie Mallard & The Valley Beats we developed our own exotic and captivating rhythms.
Working with all three groups, we created this curious exhibition. Which includes the beautiful and intricate story globes. The shocking and scandalous tapestries depicting the secret life of sheep and some very curious painted stones.
The extraordinary children from -The children’s art school have, also crafted some of the curiosities exhibited.
Also last but by no means least, sharing memories group worked with Enfield Down and Dan Price from the Soul Choir to write a sensational song.
This project was funded by Creative minds, Enfield Down and the Sharing Memories group.
