Second post of the day, getting a bit too into this blogging malarky!!
Today was spent sorting out resources for some cool upcoming projects including some 3d wooden sculptures, mosaics, big canvasses and a ridiculous amounts of other recycled art. Any ideas of what to make out of old ties are welcome!
The rest of the day was spent gleefully scouring art catalogues and the internet, and for once it wasn’t wishful window shopping!
Just before Christmas we were blessed with our version of the Secret Millionaire (well as close as we are going to come to one), as a property developer asked us to get together a wish list of resources we need for the centre.
We jumped at the opportunity to write one, but still didn’t hold much hope for it materializing. After a visit to the project and information about what exactly ‘Your Ideas’ is about we heard back that he would buy all the resources on our wish list and we were in total shock!
Anyone working in the voluntary sector will understand how rare it is to receive funding without applying through tedious application processes, unless that is you have been visited by Channel 4 and the Secret Millionaire crew ;).
So we will now be able to replenish our ever decreasing art supplies, refurbish our battered pool table, update kitchen equipment and much more. Will update with news of lovely resources landing in our centre as they arrive.
For now here are some cute characters that can be found lurking inside ‘Your Ideas’ Youth and Community Project 🙂
