Celebrating the Old. Inspiring the New

COIN: Celebrating Hamworthy!

CoCreate are working with The Power House on ‘COIN’, a visual arts project which will culminate in an exciting arts exhibition at Lighthouse Poole

Do you have stories or memories of Hamworthy?

Would you like to take part in creative workshops celebrating the place you live?

Would you like to make something beautiful together to be exhibited at Lighthouse, Poole?

Join us in February for our Community Connections taster sessions.

We’re holding four community sessions online for people to connect and share their stories of Hamworthy, maybe you live there, or perhaps you used to work or visit. Each session has a different theme, and you’re welcome to join one or all the sessions.

The stories and ideas we gather will contribute to how we work with the community to develop the community artwork, if you’d like to be one of the artists working on the project with us please come along and find out how you can sign up to take part in the creative workshops during March, April and May.

Sessions will be held on Zoom and will last 1 hour, we’ll have time to hear from people attending, learn more about the COIN project, and there will be creative activities to try as well.

Use the links below to register your place and we’ll send you the link to join in online.
