Partnership between CKH and Urban exhibition offering free creative workshops in Peterborough

Inspired by the street art currently on display at the exhibition we are sponsoring at Peterborough Museum and Gallery, we're inviting local people to join free creative workshops.

We are the community partner in the Urban exhibition. The partnership will result in a series of free workshops hosted by different local artists. The artists will share skills and inspiration at sessions delivered online and in person at locations around the city over the coming months. After a challenging period of lockdowns and isolation, it is hoped the art will help people connect, learn more about what Peterborough has to offer, and enjoy the benefits that creativity has been proven to have on good mental health.

The first workshop will be taking place virtually on Saturday 29 January, offering young people the chance to hone their video skills with local filmmaker Emily Steele. Details of further workshops will be announced in the coming weeks. CKH residents also have the chance to win free tickets to attend the exhibition. 

Claire Higgins, Chief Executive of CKH, said: “CKH is working in close partnership with the Museum to help more people make the most of opportunities within the city. Together, we’re finding ways to help everyone in our community access this exciting exhibition, particularly young people. There will be a range of events and activities taking place between January and May so keep an eye open for more exciting events coming soon.”
