The Connecting Culture research project, led by University of Southampton, has launched its ambitious ‘Creative Consultation’ programme of artist-led creative workshops for children and young people in Southampton.
Following delays caused by Covid-19, the first workshops took place at Polygon and Bitterne Park Primary schools in the first week of May, and ultimately around 1000 children and young people from across the city are set to take part.
In order to get to know the Artist Facilitators that will be running our Creative Consultation workshops, we have interviewed each of them to gain an insight into their practice, their roles in the Connecting Culture project and to hear their advice for aspiring young creatives.
First up we have Natalie Watson, contemporary dance artist, who works collaboratively with a variety of arts organisations to create accessible dance for all. We hope you enjoy the video!
