2011 Creative PartnershipsWMDC

Phase 2

Pennine Camphill Community was successful in their 2011 Creative Partnerships bid from WMDC

The proposal formed part of our overall vision statement and our plans to expand and develop cultural and hands on learning to a wider and diverse audience. The project focused on engaging people who are vulnerable and  at risk.

We have put in place a year long programme delivered in three phases. Read about Phase One or our Pugneys performance recently completed the second phase as follows:

Over the course of that long hot sultry summer an amazing performance took place on the bank of Pugneys Lake. Both the audience and the players were wind swept - but the show went on! A further performance took place in the main hall at Pennine. It's a magical mix of stories, costumes and masks, not forgetting the brilliant direction. A collaboration with Faceless created two separate week long mask, puppet and physical theatreAulis conference of the birds workshops culminating in two stunning public performances.  Barriers were put aside as children, young and not so Conference of the Birdsayoung worked to a common aim - the performance. Age, language and ability proved no obstacle as elements of a quite profound story was brought to life.

Pennine College also ran a series of pottery taster workshops over the summer attended by over three hundred people from Portobello as part of Soul Portobello festival. It was so popular that an additional workshop week was offered in Pennine's craft hub.
