Your Ideas Redditch Update

So it’s time for an update on what’s been going on at Your Ideas Redditch headquarters…

-Two of our amazing members applied for and received a grant to work with other local youngsters in a project named ‘Fix Up Look Sharp’. The grant is from the┬áPrinces Trust – Ben Kinsella Trust who support youngsters aged 14-25 to set up their own project to help promote anti-gun, knife and gang violence messages to their local community. We are running a series of workshops creating planters and other wooden goodies to be donated to Noahs Ark Nursery in Matchborough.

-On Thursday 2 of our Art Club members went along to the Matchborough Youth Forum meeting to find out more about the group. They visited at the right time as the group were treated to a tour of the town hall – including a question and answer with the Mayor of Redditch Anita Clayton in her parlour! Our members loved it and are planning on getting more involved.

We now have so much art work so we will have a tough job choosing what to exhibit!

Here is a snapshot of what they get up to at the club and┬átheir latest creations, coming to an exhibition space near you soon… If you live near Redditch that is! Enjoy!

Art Angel of Matchborough update

So our beautiful Art Angel Gabriel is nearing completion after the gold spraying of his wings this week thanks to Jez from our Arrow Vale group.

He is also sporting some very abstract and glamourous underwear which we are sure will soon be seen on catwalks around the world!

All he needs now is some more sparkly detail on his wings to make him even more amazing and he will be ready to be displayed as part of our Art Club exhibition in a public display space in Redditch. We can’t wait!
