Stickman Family Arts Event

More Fun Than You Could Shake A Stick At

The Stickman inspired family arts event, at Eccles Library, on Monday 24th October, was so popular that it was fully booked, a week before, creating a fun atmosphere in the Gateway Centre.

The event began with a film screening of Stickman, enjoyed by 40 children and 28 adults. By the end of the action packed morning, participation figures reaching over 200, with families making wood-clay stick figures with Community Artist Louise Clarke and learning new percussion skills with professional musician Jenny, from Salford’s Music And Performing Arts Service (MAPAS).  One lucky family won tickets to the Stickman Live at The Lowry Theatre.

The event was part of 100 Moments, the starting project of Greater Manchester’s Live Well Make Art social movement, designed to promote the benefits that making art has on our wellbeing from 23rd - 30th October 2016 and incorporated into a publication that will be sent out to all Public Health and NHS commissioners.
