Field for the Olympics more workshops

In the build up to the Olympics we are fortunate to have the Olympic Torch relay passing through our constituency. In celebration of the Cultural Olympiad and the Torch Relay Hall Green Arts Forum (led by KHCCP) is coordinating activities with our arts Champion, the Drum, and partner organisations Parks4Play, Birmigham Playcare Network, Friends of Cannonhill Park, Calthorpe Park Children and Parents Advisory Committee, Northern Soul Arts, and the Libraries & Community Centres in our area.  

'Field for the Olympics' is making Olympic Junk puppets with a range of very different groups across our district, using the puppets in a range of storytelling, poetry and drama activities. The workshops are part of events in local parks for the torch relay, as well as in schools, community centres libraries, and care homes, all to celebrate the Olympics. The number of puppets is growing until we will have a truly impressive 'Field for the Olympics'.

So far we have run 5 workshops in a community garden, in a community centre and in a care home, with participants ranging from 1 to 100 years old.  Before the 1st July we will have run many more workshops across our constituency to bring together a staggering collection of puppets to display in venues across our constituency for the launch of the Olympics.  If you are interested in hosting the Field for the Olympics, please get in touch.  Links to workshops:
