In line with Torchlights mission for inclusivity and enabling everyone in our community with the opportunity to get involved with the carnival, throughout summer we had 5 different workshops running at various locations across Kendal, kindly hosted by:
Sandgate School, Sandylands
Becks Community Centre, Heron Hill
Hallgarth Community Centre, Hallgarth
The Westmorland Shopping Centre
The LAB, Abbot Hall Art gallery
In these workshops people from the community worked alongside local artists to help create entrances for the carnival procession. These Summer Workshops used community arts to build on community strengths to tell the story of local people within the Carnival Procession.
