Unity House have a strong track record in developing projects which engage and inspire young people and communities.
We have delivered projects throughout the North with artists equipping particicpants with all the skills they need to produce their own content.
We collaborated with Bury Library Service and Bury Art Museum on this 6-week project.
Young people worked with video-maker Richard Shaw, photographer Matt Gartside and sound artist David Birchall. They explored the artists’ working practices before developing their own digital arts content inspired by their surroundings.
Unity House managed and delivered this project through support from Arts Council England’s Libraries Fund.
As well as supporting young people to learn new skills and gain confidence, we led a development session bringing together Council staff, artists and arts organisations.
This explored opportunities for delivering arts activities in communities and potential future collaborations.
