Arts 4 All

Cumbria Cerebral Palsy

Prism Arts and Cumbria Cerebral Palsy are working together to deliver Arts 4 All, a twelve month programme of inclusive arts workshops and events.

The work takes place at Cumbria Cerebral Palsy’s Resource Centre at Lister House, Carlisle.

Working with Prism Arts artists, participants will cover a range of art forms including puppetry, textiles, willow work, music and drama.  Project research will require participants to visit: Tullie House Museum and Art Gallery; local galleries; and the Chester Puppet Pageant, the home of the Chester giant puppets.  The project will culminate with participants taking part in Carlisle Pageant 2015 and in the 2015 C-Art Exhibition at Carlisle Business Interaction Centre, Paternoster Row.
