Creative arts charity to visit Kendal
AN award-winning creative arts charity is coming to Kendal to work with children with learning disabilities.
During a five day residency at Sandgate School and Queen Katherine at Sandgate, two professional musicians will deliver an interactive music project to pupils.
It will involve sensory exploration and musical improvisation, specially tailored to children’s needs, and was made possible after the charity’s chief executive won a prestigious woman of the year award.
Nicky Goulder, who won the Clarins Most Dynamisante Woman of the Year Award in June, and scooped the £30,000 prize, has chosen to use part of award to fund visits to six special schools across the UK - with Kendal coming first.
“I am passionate about the power of music to help transform lives and I can’t wait to see what the children come up with, working with our professional musicians. I have particular thanks to Clarins for making this project possible.”
Working with small groups of children, Create’s musicians will investigate sounds, instruments and vibrations.
The residential runs from November 11-15.
