We got hands on all day with Social in the Square on Sept. 13 in St. Andrews Square. So many great things happening!
We had a fantastic Closing Party Thanks to Growler Beers UK, Ocean Terminal, and our amazing artists and team.
We are getting ready to launch more workshops, including an entire 8 week course after school for 8 - 11 year olds. Also, we will be running more weekend workshops for grown ups too.
Well we’re a group of passionate creatives. There’s no doubt that pop up shops, restaurants, and anything else that can “pop up” are popping up. We’re not ones to shy away from a trend, but we’re also harnessing that and making it our own.
As of writing this, we’re brand new. In our infancy, we’re trying a lot of things out and embracing the flexibility we have by not being tied down in one location.
So where did this come from?
We firmly believe art is for everyone. Artists need more opportunities to get their work out, and not just in traditional spaces. Cultural poverty is also a major problem, and we want to reach out to groups that don’t have the opportunity to experience the arts, maybe that’s because of their location, age, race, or physical and mental limitations.
Our goal is to take art everywhere we can. We want to help artists show and sell their work. We also want more people to learn the joy of being creative and seeing the arts first hand.
Flying solo is no fun, and makes life more difficult, so we’re always looking to collaborate with artists, galleries, businesses, individuals, governments, local groups, and really anyone else who can’t resist a little magic and creativity. We believe increasing arts accessibility will only come from working together, not competing. Basically, we just spend our days being excited about the possibilities.
