Attenborough’s Cultural Communities is an exciting, ambitious new community arts project from our Learning and Outreach Team that creates tailored engagement to extend the reach and impact of our new digital and online cultural activity. This crucial project funded by the Peter Sowerby Foundation, focuses on reaching the most isolated in Leicester/shire, due to their disability or complex needs and the disproportionate impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on their lives. The Outreach Co-ordinator facilitates access to digital content, streamed through platforms and online networks, to ensure children, young people with the most barriers, and their families, have access to world-class arts and cultural commissions.

The Attenborough Cultural Communities project includes:

  • Development of a new online learning resource for people wanting to create their own artwork including income generating and restriction-free classes
  • A dedicated Digital Outreach Co-ordinator ensures that the new resources are tailored to the needs of disabled and disadvantaged children and their families
  • Access to our Centre’s main programme of performances, exhibitions, creative learning workshops through digital and online activity
  • Tailored art packs to take home with detailed and accessible videos
  • Live-streamed and pre-recorded performances
  • Live Zoom art workshops
  • Online creative activities for all the family

For further information please contact the programme coordinator Hannah on Hannah.pillai@leicester.ac.uk
