PROJECT WORKSHOPS:

A total of 12 Community Workshops are being delivered by professional artists across these art forms for school holidays. The brief is to engage Young People from Wythenshawe in expressing their heritage through each of the following creative arts:

Poetry

Dance

Music

Street art

Animation

OUTCOMES

People:
Young People will have learnt how to research their local heritage in depth
Young People will have learnt from and collaborated with intergenerational groups including the Friends of Wythenshawe Hall, and the Local History Group
Young People will have learnt valuable skills in technology and design, interpreting the story of Wythenshawe in diverse, creative ways
Young People will have helped to plan 6 whole day heritage workshops to enable other Young People to express their heritage creatively
Young People will have learnt how to plan a large community event
Young People will have taught older people how to use the Augmented Reality technology to enable them to benefit
Young People will have had their work and achievements accredited by receiving the Bronze or Silver Arts Award

Community:
The wider Wythenshawe community will have learnt about their heritage as a result of the project, the community event and the installations
Children in Wythenshawe schools will have learnt about their heritage from the Local History Unit which will be produced as a pack within the project website
The community will have changed their attitudes towards Wythenshawe, which traditionally has negative connotations and a poor image, realising that we share a rich heritage and a bright future
Everyone will have had an enjoyable experience – from the Young People who will experience various creative stimuli, working with professionals and using fantastic technology at the WOW Zone, to the wider community who will enjoy the positive experience of seeing the work celebrated and displayed, using the impact of Augmented Reality.

Heritage
Wythenshawe’s heritage will be better explained because it will be the Young People who will interpret it themselves, expressing it through the various art forms, as depicted in the 6 wall displays and through their own words, recorded within the interactive time-line mural.
Wythenshawe’s heritage will have been identified and recorded through the installations which will be on display for the wider community to experience at Wythenshawe Forum; it is envisaged that this will be exhibited for many years.
