Our Arts Development team are raising awareness of two amazing projects they are running. 

Arts At The Heart is a project for isolated older people. If you live by yourself in Kirk Hallam or are not able to
get out and about this could be for you. Big Kirk Hallam are working with Erewash Borough Council to provide isolated older people with up to 8 free weekly arts and craft sessions at home and assistance to take part in a free local community arts group too. Our next community arts groups are at Kirk Hallam Community Hall,Kenilworth Drive.

Next to the Children's Centre, the Castle pub and the shops. The dates are

Thursday October 15th
1.30pm – 2.30pm

Thursday November 12th 1.30pm –

Thursday December 10th 1.30pm –

For both the community group and sessions in your home an artist will bring art materials and resources for you to try your hand at a
selection of arts activities. You do not need to be a skilled artist yourself. The artist will bring everything you need to create objects, pictures and enjoy the chance to be creative and its free.
