National Lottery Funding Award For Awenek
26th June 2020

We are excited and most grateful to announce that Awenek Studio has been awarded a #NationalLottery Covid Response Fund of £33,280.  🎉🙏🤩

We have been awarded funding to help with the challenges faced by people during the Covid pandemic. Art and creativity can help people to re-engage, help with mental wellbeing and can support activities for families.

The fund will enable us to continue, grow and look to the future, supporting people on the Rame Peninsula and surrounding area through arts and crafts.

We are looking forward to creating local job opportunities, collaborating with artists, creatives and local groups to deliver:

🛍️  ‘Art & Craft Packs’ offered to children, families and adults. These will be delivered locally across the Rame peninsula.

🎨  ‘Arts for Wellbeing’, complimenting the schools & family creative activities.

🌿. ‘Garden & Nature Crafts’, collaborative interactive community arts.

🌟  ‘Create & Show’, where people display their art and craft work in their windows, with local businesses and on social media

✏️  ‘Online Sketch Book Socials’, which have proved to be hugely popular with women and can now resume outside this Summer

🖍️  ‘Give Art a Go workshops’, using both interactive Zoom and recorded sessions e.g. animation, braiding, nature crafts (for those that can walk outside).🧶

✨  ‘Home Education Art’, monthly workshops

💫  ‘Art & Crafts Friendship Group’, offering an online network of peer support currently with 117 members & growing.

We are excited to get creating and engaging with people through art as we navigate through these worrying times together. 💕
