LOCAL INITIATIVES

Below are a list of local initiatives that we've learned about - whether local food deliveries or online courses and possibilities. It's crucial we stay connected and continue to support one another in this difficult time. Support local and stay safe!

COVID-19 MUTUAL AID GROUP LIST

If you'd like anything mentioned then please drop us a line: hello@villageraw.com with the word LOCAL in the email's subject line. Likewise - if you need support do let us know.

A DIARY OF OUR TIMES

One of the initiatives we'd like to do is for community members to submit diary entries for April. We'll compile a range of these for the next issue of Village Raw - capturing a slice of the thoughts and feelings prevalent at this difficult time. Look out for more details of this in coming emails/social media posts. 

If you're interested you can submit your thoughts/feelings/experiences, once a day or whenever you feel inclined to write something, by emailing hello@villageraw.com. Make sure to add DIARY in the email subject field.

By submitting your diary entry you give us permission to edit (not the meaning but we may have to shorten entries) and publish your text in Village Raw.

THE VIRTUAL WORKSHOP N4

Lisa Price is a local artist and runs a Creative Art Space called The WORKSHOP N4 which she started in 2017. Responding to present times Lisa has a new way of teaching her art classes. Lisa will be running her art club through a private Instagram page called @theworkshopathome, aimed at children 5-11 years. Although this is an ‘online’ art club it will give your children time away from the screen too!

Each week Lisa will upload a video to the Instagram page @theworkshopathome, setting out an Art Challenge. The video will focus on either an artist to inspire the lesson or a key word to open creative thinking and imagination. During each video Lisa will introduce the children to the theme and show them examples of how they can use different mediums, tips and tricks and how to explore that weeks theme in more detail.

As an addition to this Lisa will also be posting 4 mini challenges every week that will keep your children’s creativity going throughout the week. Instagram Art Club allows you as parents to have the freedom to work out your own schedules at home and can log into the challenges at any time and as many times as you want. It also gives children the opportunity to interact with each other and Lisa through Instagram, ask questions, post their artwork for other children to see and create an online art community, just like the community Lisa has worked hard to create at her studio.

Book your space and find out more here www.theworkshopn4.com/virtualartclub
