Hospital Outreach

We are pleased to announce that from the end of April we will be starting a new programme of artist led workshops for young people who cannot attend mainstream school due to a diagnosed complex medical and/or mental health condition.

We will be working in partnership with the award winning Northamptonshire Hospital and Outreach Education to reach children who have been referred to them by the child’s mainstream school and are supported by a medical practitioner, building on the success of our long-running Alternative Provision programme.

The activities will be as diverse as digital drawing and animation, to sound sampling, textiles and robotics, each informed by the perspective professional artistic practice.
