High Peak Community Arts AGM 2017
On Tuesday November 28th 2017, we held our AGM at the Providence URC Church in New Mills. The turnout was fantastic, and the evening enhanced by a wonderful performance by the Amarone Ensemble. Made up of a trio of talented musicians, all who currently play for the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra, the Ensemble treated our audience to spine tingling renditions of a number of musical pieces by composers including Handel, Elgar and Bach.
We circulated our latest annual report at the meeting. The report contains information about everything that the team has been up to from April 2016- March 2017. So much has happened – including canal boat art, lavendar and wool weaving and ceramic birdbath creations with Project eARTh; the Write to Roam and Young Writers Camp; the For The Love of Books early years learning programme; and the first year of our new partnership with Glossopdale Community College, Buxton Community School and Chapel-en- le-Frith Pupil Referral Unit via the Music Arts Pod project. It’s been a busy year, with the continuation of past projects and the start of many new ones. Huge thanks to our funders and supporters, without whom we would not be able to use the arts as a tool for positive change in local peoples lives.
Do have a read of our latest report, if you have time, and please let us know your thoughts!
