Summer Showcase

Posted on: June 23rd, 2016 by Steph Dickinson No Comments

We are extremely excited to bring to you our Summer Showcase, a creative celebration from the young people we work with. There will be music, spoken word, visual art and a debut from our very own contemporary dance performance company. In the exquisite surroundings of the  Turner Contemporary we will be celebrating the creativity and achievements of the many young people that we have the privilege of working with. The event is completely free and open to the public, we want as many local people as possible to see just how talented our young people are. We’ll be in the Foyle Rooms at Turner Contemporary, but don’t worry if you don’t know where they are, you’ll hear us 🙂

Create Community Intergenerational Group

Posted on: June 8th, 2016 by Steph Dickinson No Comments

We are thrilled to be starting a two-year creative intergenerational project for the people of Ramsgate called Create Community. Thanks to funding from People’s Health Trust we are able to facilitate weekly meet ups where local people are able to share skills and creativity and learn from each other. There will be food, art, music and showcase events, all with the aim of bridging the gap between different generations.

We believe that creativity is a brilliant way to bring the community together. So if you live in Ramsgate and would love to be part of an exciting new intergenerational creative group, please get in touch.

This project is all about the local community, we will be setting up a steering group so that participants are involved in all decisions including programming, budget and performance events. We will facilitate the project and offer our creative expertise to ensure that all who attend have a high quality experience.

Having worked with young people for a number of years we are particularly interested in hearing from people over the age of 60 BUT we will welcome all ages so don’t let that put you off.

We are hosting a couple of taster sessions throughout the summer, please pop along to find out more about the project…

Monday 26th September & Monday 3rd October @ Pie Factory Music, High Street St Lawrence, CT110QG, 4.30-7pm

To book your place please fill out the form below or for more details please contact info@piefactorymusic.com or call us on 01843 596777
